Lol which team in their right mind would want Lin? Unless the Rockets are trying to dump Lin with Asik.

A team like the Mavs , Bucks or Magic would if they miss out on a PG . Lin is still improving as a player and still have some potential . He works best as the lead guard , a role he excelled at when he played in NY , not I'm Houston with Harden there . Not to Mention Lin brings the overseas market that can appeal to team not doing so well in sales .

Isn't Lin contract like 8 million for three more years ? If he gets close to his NY stats with him being in that lead guard role he would have played closed to the money he's getting not to mention the fan base he would bring along with him . So there is no wrong to anyone who would trade for Lin especially if they got a 1st along with him . That poison pill doesn't effect his contract since the Knicks didn't match the offer

Seems like the Rockets are high on Beverly , truth is the Rockets don't need a better PG just somebody who will fit in with Harden . He doing the majority of the ball handling . Just need a PG to shoot the 3 , defend and pass a Lil which Beverly does.

I think Beverely will start for you guys. He won't be asked to create offense for anyone since Harden will do that, Beverely will probably just asked to play defense which he's very good at.

06-30-2013, 09:36 PM
What I think the Rockets are trying to do Is get a better PF not PG . Someone like Ryan Anderson , Milsap , Josh Smith or wait till 2015 and try and get a Monroe or Aldridge , maybe Love .

Another possible landing spot for Jeremy Lin is Detroit, source says. Rockets would acquire Jose Calderon in sign-and-trade in such a deal.

Calderon would be a solid addition. But why the hell would Detroit make that trade?

Knicks weren't saying he suck when he won them those games . Flip floppers , Lin was a prisoner of Harden . His numbers would have looked better if that trade never happen . Lin is a guard who needs a spot of shooter next to him like a JJ Redick , not another lead guard .

Trade Asik and Terrance Jones to the Pelicans for Greivis Vasquez and Ryan Anderson. Then trade Lin to anybody who wants him for a decent backup.

06-30-2013, 10:18 PM
I can see a deal for Lin somewhere... maybe Lin for Jack or something in some SnT deal, but it'd be kinda nice to see what our frontcourt combo would be like with Howard/Asik up there - even Isaiah Thomas made mention of this today, making the same "Olujuwon/Sampson" reference I banged on about earlier last week. Sure they're different offensively, but you know good and well that when Morey and Olajuwon meet with Howard tomorrow morning, Hakeem'll be like "I will teach you and Omer what I did with Ralph, and you will be a Champion."

Agreed not everyone gets this. Lin had to adapt to Hardens game he didn't look comfortable playing off the ball up until the end of the season even than it wasn't ideal him and Harden.

I still think Lin > Beverly. He just doesn't fit well with Harden, because both of them are ball dominant players. The Rockets are simply looking for a 3 and D player, which fits Beverly's profile much better. I can't blame them honestly, it's what's best for their organization.


Harden and Lin were not ideal fits. Beverly will probably start for Houston. Lin will have better numbers if he's the primary ball handler on another team.

Lin is trash. Asik in the other hand

When you have Harden and Lin on the floor, obviously you're going to give the ball to Harden. No doubt he's the better ball-handler. He averages 14 pp48 with Harden on the floor and 27 pp48 when Harden's on the bench. I still don't think he's at the level of an all-star guard yet, but he's far from trash. Throw him into a team with a need for a primary ball handler and I guarantee he averages 18/7.

I will be beyond mad if this is true, not because I like Lin, though I love Asik. But because the rockets are going to start getting a reputation of treating players like assets, no loyalty. And players need to feel secure when they commit to a team, and I personally wouldn't feel secure signing with the Rockets, knowing I could be shipped off to a team I did not chose to sign to any moment.

I think this is true about Asik. They won't deal him without a Dwight deal in place.

I wouldn't be shocked to see them sign and trade Lin for a Josh Smith type even without Dwight. They can upgrade their talent and bench with the cap they have left. And a team like Atlanta can cash cow Lin

That's what happens to role players in this league. Lin didn't stay with the Knicks(the team that gave him a chance and the city that adored him and made him a National headline) and Asik took the first big contract out of Chicago. Does that mean teams won't sign them cause they have already left teams in FA?

Actually Houston was in the contention for a playoff spot every year after the tmac and Yao injuries. They kept a competitive team that had playoff records, just fell a bit short at the end. That's not pathetic. Pathetic is being a bottom 3 team. What is your reason for trolling so hard? Is that what gets you off at night or what?

Nothing special as in superstar, no. Borderline all star to all star potential, yes. He does it all. Defend,can shoot, can drive, good handles, good passer. He's a really good player, people just don't know much about him because he isn't popular, but he will be. Even Kobe gave him props, and he even said "and I don't say that about a lot of people so that's special" or something along those lines.

Asik and Lin getting traded or not all depends on where D12 decides to go.

If Dwight lands in Houston, then Asik is most likely getting shipped off to Portland (Blazers took Thomas Robinson off their hands to clear up cap space for Howard, so Houston may return the favor).

As for Lin, I say he stays put this offseason, and if his struggles continue, the Rockets will look to deal him before the trade deadline.

Never as pathetic as the Suns. Even tho we missed the playoffs 3 years in row. In that span we managed to NBA record for best record by a team with no All-Stars. Never finish even close to last in the conference.


Actually Houston was in the contention for a playoff spot every year after the tmac and Yao injuries. They kept a competitive team that had playoff records, just fell a bit short at the end. That's not pathetic. Pathetic is being a bottom 3 team. What is your reason for trolling so hard? Is that what gets you off at night or what? We are in a sports forum, don't you have better things to do than troll?

How am I the one trolling when I was having a discussion about what this thread is about (the Rockets) and the poster above you tried to bring up the Suns, something completely irrelevent to the topic to try and make a point?

I get it that the Rockets are finally good now, you guys are contenders, you guys are the s**t and everything and all the fans are super hyped up on it but why be so arrogant?

Calm your titties. He got an invite to the 2nd squad. Even Gordon Beiber got one. Parsons is truly nothing special and I guarantee you he won't make an impact on Dwight's decision.
But...didn't you hear? Parsons is a once in a lifetime player. Him, Harden and Dwight are gonna bring the title to Houston :laugh:

But I thought you guys always had stars on your team?

The way they talk, you would think they did. It would be some sweet karma if Dwight (another player with injury history) becomes just like Yao and Harden (a superstar player like T-Mac) ends up suffering the same fate as T-Mac.

It sure would help shut up some of the ignorant Rockets fans. They finally got one good player and now they may be getting a diva in Dwight to sign with them and they think their all f**ing that lol.

IMO Rockets screwed up big time. They should of stick with their your team and not rush the brush. Let them grow together. Going After Howard IMO hurt them even if the land him. They would be a good team just not a championship one with a larg pay role with no room to sign help. They should have target Al Jefferson to add to what they already have. They are making the same mistake Sixers did last year chasing the big name killing the chemistry they made. Keep the young deep team. Face it the last 10 championship that were handed out did not have Howard.

If James Harden goes down Howard would find himself on a team worst than the one he left in Orlando.

Anyway, as iv said it before, I don't houston getting Dwight, I see the rockets getting smith which would put us ahead of Memphis and Denver. That team would be good enough for 4th to 5th seed. Maybe 3rd if the rockets were lucky.

Aw Rockets fans getting butt hurt cause I insulted their 2nd rd pick Parsons?

And no sorry other than Harden who is the only reason the Rockets are even relevant again, Houston has nobody that's better than the best players on the Suns. And the Suns suck and are a horrible team so that should tell you how I feel about the Rockets minus Harden.

Dude, you brought Suns to this conversation... And who on Suns roster is better than Harden? I'm curious.

Read the sentence before it...I said other than Harden. And no I didn't bring the Suns into it, one of the Rockets fans did. The post you quoted wasn't the first post of the conversation.
