The Rockets have made Omer Asik and Jeremy Lin “available” in trade talks, according to CBSSports.com.
Jeremy Lin has been on the market now since the start of the summer. Getting rid of Asik would clear up an mis-interpretation that the Rockets want Dwight Howard and more cap space for build further around him.
The 76ers have shown interest in signing Asik. If the Rockets would to trade Lin, they would request a point guard in return, with one of the few options at the disposal being Aaron Brooks.
