Rockets Looking To Trade Jeremy Lin, If They Sign Dwight Howard


Jeremy Lin Commercial

Remember Linsanity?

Yeah, me neither.

Rival teams say the Rockets are making Lin available, as well, though they’d have to get a starting point guard in return. As part of their cap-clearing maneuvers to land Howard, Houston waived Aaron Brooks and Carlos Delfino on Sunday. The Rockets are off the hook for Delfino’s $3 million salary, which was non-guaranteed.

Teams believe the Rockets will move both Asik and Lin if they close the deal with Howard this week. Lin, whose acquisition last summer was heralded as a coup, was not invited to Houston’s pitch meeting with Howard, sources said.
