    Clutch Fans Shocker. Glad he is playing well and very nice insurance policy to have. I think he should get some of Garcia's minutes moving forward.

    He did great coming off the Bench so looks like he'll be taking Lin's 6th man off the bench position.

    Jeremy might still get traded.

    Sell high on Lin and get rid of him and Asik's combined 16.6 million dollar contracts and look for a nice fish in FAs if you can't trade for a star.

    IMO he did well against Twolves because he knows Adelman's system and was too quick for Barea or Rubio to guard him.

    Aaron is likely the best point guard on this team! Yes he had only one good game this season but has a proven track record dating back to 2010. I understand why he would come off the bench (mainly his bad defense) but he is one of the best players on the team that can take advantage of the presence of Dwight Howard. As the season goes on he may become a key finisher of games.

    Brooks renders Jeremy Lin expendable?

    Trade Lin and use Brooks as sixthman. Let's sell high on Jeremy.

    Only a matter of time before Morey trades Lin & asik and uses brooks as back up pg. Brooks is more proven in the playoffs before when he was here & last year than Lin. He's someone you can trust coming off the bench.

    Oh he's too short etc ???? See mavs championship team when rick brought j.j barea off bench to give them that offensive punch, especially in the finals.

    everybody is so keen on trading away our players. why not just trade harden as well, we've always been great on offense and it's not like he plays any d. Let's trade jones too since god forbid he actually be a good basketball player. trade trade trade

    I don't know, may Harden, Beverley, and Lin can be let go. Lets not forget maybe he can take Garcia and Casspi's place also.

    Agreed. Playing Well would mean he has played more than one game and is consistent. I would agree with OP on giving him same amount of minutes while harden is away to see what he can do.

    As for selling High - it's possible to keep Brooks and trade Lin instead because of his salary.

    Could Lin possibly get traded to Chicago in any scenario? They need a PG atm. What can Chicago give to Rockets? Woudl Asik go back?
