    Murray is bringing him back to further marginalize him.

    to be honest I wouldn't be surprised if he was bought out before the "need to be waived to be eligible for playoff roster" date and signed back with us.....

    I wouldn't like it but could see it happening.....

    AB had 3 stints with us, Francis, Mike James, hell Moochie Norris had 2 stints

    wish it was Gogi or Lowry that had their 2nd stints here before Lin......

    it doesn't surprise me anymore.....

    Lin making $3-4 mil a year isn't bad.

    As much as I hate his fans, I can stomach bringing Lin back at $5M a year.

    I think the Rockets are just being nice...
    but if they do consider him his cost should be much lower now; $1-1.5 million at the absolute maximum.

    The odd thing is he still thinks he needs time to be a better version of his Houston self... how much more time? His skill set is established at this point.
