    We don't know which 1st pick was sent out and whose draft rights were included.

    can't wait for kobe to give lin the death stare when lin gets striped of the ball in the closing seconds of the fourth with the game tied instead of protecting the ball or calling a time out. Couldn't happen to a better franchise.

    Pick your battles that is a stretch to call racist. I mean, really it isn't racist. It is hilarious. There are blatantly racist posts you could report if you want.

    Yup, it had to be done. Hope the Asik trade gets done quickly as well so we can lock Bosh in.

    I like Jeremy Lin as a person. I also think he's a pretty decent player. He was over-paid, and his fans were kind of annoying.

    I wish him luck because he's a good guy. I hope he finds a good spot eventually so that he doesn't have to keep switching teams.

    The new trade rules require the other team to send something back. They had to send us cash.

    [rQUOTEr]In an effort to clear salary cap space for Chris Bosh, the Houston Rockets have reached a deal to send guard Jeremy Lin to the Los Angeles Lakers, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

    The Rockets will send a 2015 first-round pick, and other draft considerations to the Lakers to unload the final year of Lin's $14 million expiring contract that includes a salary cap hit of $8.3 million based on the deal's structure.

    The Lakers will send cash and the rights to an overseas player, sources said.

    Moving Lin to Los Angeles will clear most of the salary cap space necessary to sign Bosh to a four-year, $80 million-plus contract. The Rockets are still working to formalize a commitment out of Bosh, who will leave Miami because of the departure of LeBron James to Cleveland. The Rockets also plan to match Chandler Parsons' three-year, $46 million offer sheet with the Dallas Mavericks once Bosh has committed, sources told Yahoo Sports.

    Bosh was planning to speak to Houston coach Kevin McHale on Friday afternoon, a source said.

    The fact that Lin has only one year left on his deal appeals to the Lakers, who want to keep flexibility for future free-agent classes.

    Why would LOF vote no? I bet Lin is thrilled to be traded to the Lakers where he would start and do tons of P&Rs. His numbers will all go up and it is a contract year.

    That truly is remarkable.

    Morey has turned Landry and the deadweight salary of McGrady into Harden, Howard, Bosh and a 1st round pick.

    Remarkable.
