    If you hate the Lakers, then you should be happy. That is, if you are a Rockets fan.

    Wait Wait WAIT.

    We're sending Lin and his $15 million contract and a 1st round pick (likely in the 28-30 range) for CASH AND AN ASSET?

    WOW.

    We have to see which pick and what protections. Morey's not giving up the bank THIS quickly.

    What do we get in return? Will LA stock the soda in our soda machine for a year as Morey wants his players paying for soda? ;)

    Wha??? We send them a player with a back-loaded $15m payday, and they send us cash? Surely Woj got that backwards.

    Okay pick up for LA. I just don't like that we have to see a 1st round pick. Maybe 2nd round lol. The Raptor should come to Houston. Solid PF I just hope he can return to his Toronto form.
