Rockets finding it hard to trade Lin and Asik, likely to keep them
“It is a tough sell to bring something like that to your owner,” one league executive said. “You have got to tell him, ‘We’re getting a pretty good player, an $8 million player. Oh, but we have to pay him $15 million. We will be giving him LeBron (James) money. That’s OK, right?’ That’s not really a conversation you want to have.” - (source)
when they forget what Kevin Long saids
I follow rules and appreciate the ignore button
Lin is playing well I'd like to keep him, Asik is more than an 8 million dollar player.
I don't even think it's hard to deal them. Morey is just asking for too much
If Asik would just learn to except his role, the Rockets would be good as is..
just trying to get more value..
Yeah, if Morey wasn't so stubborn he'd easily be able to move them. There are plenty of teams who can use a legit C and a guard who gets to the rim unlike the majority of guards in the game.
Why should he put jones in. He can deal asik and Lin easy he just wants to much
It's not hard to deal them , Rockets are just stingy .
No The Rockets are asking for 1st round picks along with wanting to teams take on salary , That's stupid.

Why do they want to trade Lin at all? He is playing well.
Its tough to trade them if your not willing to compensate one bit for the poison pill year and your expecting a return that you would expect if there was no poison pill in his contract at all.
