    Default Jeremy Lin Trade Rumors: Could He End Up Back With New York Knicks?

    Now that NBA free agency is in full swing, there are rumors running rampant. Last season Jeremy Lin was the center of those rumors and this offseason he finds himself in the middle of trade rumors. The Houston Rockets are currently heavily pursuing Dwight Howard, but according to reports, Howard will only sign with the Rockets if they are willing to bring in a third superstar to go along with himself and James Harden. The only way that could happen would be if the Rockets trade away Jeremy Lin.

    As good as Lin is on the basketball court, he really is no better than a bench player. Lin's value is more important when it comes to marketing, putting butts in the seats and selling jerseys. He is more of a celebrity than a basketball player.

    In case you have been living under a rock, Lin first became famous as a member of the New York Knicks. When Carmelo Anthony missed a chunk of time last year, Lin stepped in and led the Knicks to several victories. However, he decided to take the most money and sign with the Rockets last offseason.


    Is it possible that the Knicks would welcome Lin back to their team?


    As stated previously, Lin brings a lot of attention with him wherever he goes and the Knicks have never been a team to shy away from the spotlight. If Lin would be willing to take a role on the bench, we do believe that New York would welcome him back with open arms.


    Regardless of what happens with the Houston Rockets, it is hard to imaging Lin finding himself without a team. There are a ton of places that would love to give him a contract just because of his die-hard fans. As a basketball player in the NBA, as long as you can sell jerseys, you'll have a job.

    Does that mean Jeremy Lin is not a superstar? What a sursprise

    Lin & Tebow have more headlines than game.

    We've been through so much together as an online community, can we just not do this to ourselves? Seriously, Jeremy Lin offseason Knicks' thread in 2013? I can't do it, I just can't.

    Not really. We have that cap space in 2015 and his contract would expire along with the other big contracts we have. That being said even if we did want him we literally don't have the matching salaries to trade for him now that Camby and Novak are gone.

    NOT NATE BECAUSE.....the BULLS could employ Nate without Heinrich or ROSE...but not the Knicks. We are not good enough to have a defensive liability like Nate.

    I guess some people still don't know the real facts.

    Anyway, he's definitely regressed while in Rockets and he clearly doesn't fit there as they just make him a spot-up shooter. That being said, I would prefer us to try to go for CP3 instead since Melo is a good friend of his. Lin is better than Felton, but we need a superstar PG and CP3 would definitely make us contenders even with our currrent broken roster

    CP3 just signed for 103 million..do you have the foggiest idea of payrolls and limitation. Stop dreaming with dumb posts.

    Fu^k Lin. Letting him go is the only reason I got faith grunnie getting bargs wasn't a bad move. Lin was overrated and is overpaid. Come 2015,I don't want his bum contract being the one thing holding the Knicks back from signing kyrie, hibbert, or kwahi.

    When is Lin's contract at 15 million? Stupid Rockets stole him away from us and then want to dump him a year later.

    Maybe we can have a Lin/Felton back court LOL! The irony

    Would anybody here trade Felton's 3 mil a year deal for Lin who will get a humongous pay day at 15 million in 2014-2015 season
