Houston Rockets Working Quickly To Trade Jeremy Lin

The Houston Rockets are working quickly to trade PG Jeremy Lin, according to Adrian Wojnarowski (Yahoo! Sports).

The end goal, as Wojnarowski says, is to clear enough room to sign Chris Bosh.

The Rockets already have a deal in place or Omer Asik, though things may be slightly complicated with a lower cap than expected. The Pelicans are expected to make one more small move before agreeing to take Asik in a trade.

The 76′ers are the favorites to trade for Lin, though the Golden State Warriors and Milwaukee Bucks have also been mentioned as suitors. Other teams could get in the mix as well, with the Rockets looking to trade Lin by this weekend.

Trading away Asik and Lin are two of the several moves the Rockets need to make in order to clear enough cap space for Chris Bosh.

      KKK, really? “”There is no majority group here, not even close,” says Michael Emerson, a Rice University sociologist who studies Houston’s demographic change. He and his research partners put together the 2012 analysis that gave Houston the title of most diverse metropolitan area in America.”

        He’s talking about ClutchFans, not Houston in general.

    Didn’t Lin just get the “dreaded vote of confidence” from the GM? I believe that’s a soccer term?? Who knows, I was on Rub Maps when this happened and my interest could be little to none for Lin.
