    Rumor is that the Rockets are looking at Lin as an afterthought and are therefore in the process of dumping his salary to willing teams.

    Would he be a good fit for the Pistons? He averaged 13.4 ppg, 3.0 rpg, and 6.1 apg.

    everyone except for JoeD knows that this team desperately needs a PG (unless Calderon is re-signed)

    Any time you have the chance to bail out another team by acquiring a player for the poison-pill portion of his contract, you gotta make that deal.

    Holy crap. He will get paid $15 million in 2014-15. That would solve our cap space problem.

    He is making $15 million in 2014-15 alone. If he ever does play for the Pistons, it won't be in the next 2 years.

    Yeah, I know. Daryl Morey trolled Chicago and NY last offseason.

    But as far as I can see, jokes on him. The Rockets must actually pay Asik and Lin $30.0 M in '14-15.

    I remember during Linsanity telling everyone that this guy is just a good player. Those are good player stats and they certainly are not worth $15m a year in 2014. Good luck to Morey finding a taker for either him or Asik. They both now have absolutely no trade value.

    To give you an idea of how bad that contract is, he is more expensive than Steph Curry, Rajon Rondo, Bledsoe, Jennings and Tony Parker.

    To answer your question, no, not a good fit. The only thing he brings is a half decent pick and roll. We can get that from Will Bynum and he only costs $3m a year.

    If my memory serves me good, his third year will be a team option.
    He's only good to log in 25 minutes every night, to be a starter with 40+mpg will kill him before next summer.

    Houston is looking to unload Lin and Asik. One rumor has Lin coming to the Pistons with Calderon leaving after a sign-and-trade.

    No, the Rockets created an offer that made it nearly impossible for the Knicks to match. They front-loaded the first 2 seasons at $5 million each and then gave him $15 million in the 3rd season.

    Let me get this straight, we're making fun of Morey and his cap situation as he's on the verge of signing Howard?

    Morey could trade Asik and Lin 3 times before Joe does something.

    Sorry, my bad. The contracts were only fron't loaded if they were matched by the Knicks. It was a hole in the CBA that Morey exploited really well. Contracts are average out.

    So we would only have to pay him Mike Conley/Jrue Holiday money :gettinghanged:

    "effing" is a kinder and gentler way of using a 4 letter word that is banned by the forum.

    Mr. Madsen was using it as a colorful metaphor.
