According to SI.com, this time the report comes from Sam Smith of Bulls.com. Smith reports the Rockets are letting teams know that both Lin and center Omer Asik would be available before the start of next season. The thinking goes that Rocket GM Daryl Morey is looking to upgrade with players to build around James Harden. One name often mentioned is Dwight Howard who will be a free agent after the season.
Both Lin, who is seen here from a scene in the documentary Linsanity, and Harden are most effective with the ball, but as long as Harden is on the court, some believe Lin will never live up to his potential.
Back in January, Bleacher.com reported Lin could possibly be traded after Houston Coach Kevin McHale benched Lin during a terrible stretch for the Rocket point guard. That didn’t happen and this trade may not happen either.
