    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.”

    Lin is playing well I'd like to keep him, Asik is more than an 8 million dollar player.

    but does your coach want to keep him?

    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..

    they wouldn't be hard to deal if he were to add Jones w/ them. But I don't think he wants to. Simply put.

    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.

    didn't you read the quote. The thinking in the league is you have to pay $30 MIL dollars. Not that many NBA execs are able or want to do that.

    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.
