@  feelingsuper... : (11 July 2014 - 07:52 PM) JVG on 790AM in Houston for you Houston guys.
@  YaoMan : (11 July 2014 - 07:49 PM) Marc Stein: So Rockets have lined up their trades for Asik and Lin and, according to sources, are inching to the brink of a commitment from Chris Bosh
@  rocketrick : (11 July 2014 - 07:34 PM) Rockets-Heat likely going to have sign and trade talks after Bosh commits to Houston.
@  SadLakerFan : (11 July 2014 - 07:30 PM) As a lifelong Lakers fan, I have no expectations for this season, but I know that the fan boards will be absolutely hilarious. Actually looking forward to it.
@  YaoMan : (11 July 2014 - 07:28 PM) Well said Drew. I do like Lin and would have liked him to succeed in a Rockets uniform but it's always a team first approach. He will be going to his home state of Cali now...
@  Drew in Abilene : (11 July 2014 - 07:23 PM) I'll miss Lin, and hate to see anyone I like in close proximity to Kobe, but I'm excited about Bosh!
@  bladad : (11 July 2014 - 07:09 PM) Looks like Parsons is gonna get that final year contract Lin money.
@  bladad : (11 July 2014 - 07:08 PM) Well, there goes the bench as well...
@  RudyT1995 : (11 July 2014 - 07:07 PM) I will miss Lin a little. Will not miss the Lin fans, at all.
@  bladad : (11 July 2014 - 07:07 PM) WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
@  RudyT1995 : (11 July 2014 - 07:06 PM) bye bye Lin. more importantly bye bye Lin fans.
@  slick shoes : (11 July 2014 - 07:02 PM) Chris_Broussard Chris Broussard
Jeremy Lin and future first round pick to Lakers , source confirns
@  thenit : (11 July 2014 - 06:57 PM) Just want to give up a first and Lin and keep the 2nd
@  YaoMan : (11 July 2014 - 06:56 PM) Chris Bosh will soon speak to coach Kevin McHale, moving closer to a commitment to the Rockets, source tells Yahoo.
@  Cooper : (11 July 2014 - 06:54 PM) A first and a second would be fairly easy to give up if we get the pells pick.
@  bboley24 : (11 July 2014 - 06:53 PM) With Lin gone, what are the chances that half of the users on this board leave?
@  YaoMan : (11 July 2014 - 06:51 PM) The Rockets finalizing Jeremy Lin, a future first-round pick and other draft considerations to the Lakers, league source tells Yahoo. - I hope they don't get rid of all of the Rockets picks...
@  slick shoes : (11 July 2014 - 06:50 PM) I've got the Clips or Spurs taking the west next year anyway.
@  thenit : (11 July 2014 - 06:43 PM) If love gets traded to Cavs, I can't see up go through the minefield in the west and beat that team in the finals
@  slick shoes : (11 July 2014 - 06:19 PM) In the Asik to Pels deal, we have to take something back which is what we are trying to avoid. They don't want to give up picks and we don't want any of their players.

Why is he not playing? I admit I was down on him to start the season but he was doing great there for a while. I especially like his defense and 3 point threat.

I know some have mentioned that he plays more of a 2 style rather than a point but he dominated mpg over lin there for a bit. Now Patrick Beverly has taken over the role as of late.

Somebody mentioned he was sick. That was a couple games ago.

Maybe he is on the trade block and they want to make sure he doesn't get hurt....?

Maybe we could trade R. White to a small Euro club....don't they take trains everywhere? That might actually be a good idea....

White for Llull? Whatever happened to that guy? Signed with Real Madrid through 2018... I liked Toney too, maybe they're preserving him and showcasing Lin for a trade? I think our PGs should be Beverley and Douglas and have Lin come off the bench behind Harden, preserve James a little bit.

If we are going to do that then we should definitely trade Lin. I would rather not...I still think he can be incredibly effective...it just hasn't come together yet. I would like to see Harden play off of Lin the way Durant plays off of Westbrook. Durant realized early on that Westbrook was most effective when he initiated the offense and took more shots....that in turn helps durant. I think we can make the same thing work in Houston.
