As rumored, the Sixers and Houston Rockets have reportedly agreed in principle to a deal that would bring Jeremy Lin, a first round draft pick, and a third piece to the 76ers. In return, the Rockets will get a really nice thank you note. According to Liberty Ballers, that first rounder could be the Rockets own or the one they got from New Orleans in the Omer Asik deal. There is still some waiting to do, which is the theme of this year’s free agency period:

So here’s how this is probably going to shake out: LeBron goes back to Cleveland, Bosh goes to Houston, and Lin comes here. After that, Cleveland may have to send Wiggins to Minnesota if they also want Kevin Love. And then there’s the issue of Chandler Parsons and his offer sheet from the Mavericks, which puts a ticking clock on Houston. Really, LeBron just needs to make up his damn mind, because everything is on hold until he does. And if he goes back to Miami? All of this will disappear into the wind.

We’ll have more on this if someone important makes up their mind.

  1. Am I the only one that sees this as a win-win for the Sixers? First, they get a first round pick (nice). On top of that, I think Lin is a damn good YOUNG player that can grow with this team. The cherry on top is that he’d be a big box office hit with Philly’s huge Oriental population.

    Where’s the down side?

  2. Lins people are responsible for Pearl Harbor.. Chinese, Korean, slant…all the same.. If u root for him u are a tyrant and a traitor.. Those yellow ppl are responsible for the USS Arizona. Don’t bring that serpent here squintgoookchinkslope

  3. Kevin Love is a terrific player, and Deadspin must feature his outlet passes almost every day during the season, but why is he commanding all of this value? Is he really worth Wiggins, this year’s first pick in a very deep draft?

  4. Here’s how it goes down. Minnesota gets Thad, the first we get from Houston, and Cleveland’s first; Cleveland gets love; we get wiggins;one day I learn how to use a semi colon and philly cars about basketball until the flyers start playing.

  5. here is al morganti filling in for angelo”-the HA sixers HA, are going HA, to get jeremy HA,lin, what do HA you guys HA, think? HA-rhea responds, clark needs a nose job

    1. That was probably the worst message I’ve ever read on here, I can’t believe a human being would waste so much time to right that shitty message.

  6. Salary dump & 1st rd pick for a nip. Love hink bringing in the chink

  7. Has anything been written about what the Sixers would have to give up in return? Everything I’ve been reading sounds like Philly will just take Lin and his contract off Houston’s hands. I thought basketball trades had to have similar salary amounts (but I also don’t really follow hoops)….
