    Lin is not a trash player. He's a good player and Morey has defended him countless times.

    He had his warts, but he was easily the best backup PG we could hope for.

    I'll miss him.

    I hope we don't give up too many assets for dumping Lin. A late first round pick is OK but not two.

    So we essentially traded Asik and Lin for Bosh, and maybe upgraded our 2015 pick in the process. Not bad at all.

    He's going to put up inflated stats in LA. The GARM might still be flooded by LOFs after each Laker game next season :eek:

    I hope it's our own pick not the Pelicans pick.

    If Morey can hold onto the Pelicans pick, that would be awesome. We cn either use it as another trade chip or use it ourselves next year.

    It's mostly likely a lottery-protected Houston pick not the Pelicans pick.

    We'll probably get a second rounder or two. Which would actually be valuable.

    I'm thinking that's why its the Lakers and not the Sixers.

    Hinkie may have overbid in this situation
