Did the Brooklyn Nets blow it by not going after Jeremy Lin?

Dennis O'Leary, an online editor at the Daily News, suggests Saturday that the Nets would have been wise to go after Jeremy Lin before the Lakers scooped him from the Rockets in a modified salary dump. He doesn't offer up any of the mechanics needed to make a deal, simply that getting Lin --and returning LinSanity to New York-- would have been a smart move because "Sorry, Netsies — but it’s time to start over." The argument is simple: Deron Williams is done, and that Lin is his equal ... and losing D-Will's contract helps the Nets rebuild. It's all so easy.  (It's only at the story's...

Melo opens door for Lin again

It was an injury to Carmelo Anthony that led to Jeremy Lin's meteoric rise to basketball relevance in New York more than two years ago. Now it appears that indecision on Anthony's part could lead to Lin trying to recapture the magic in Los Angeles. The Lakers still hadn't heard any official word from Anthony on Friday, according to a league source, when they pulled the trigger on a trade with the Houston Rockets to acquire Lin and Houston's 2015 first-round pick in exchange for cash considerations and the rights to an undisclosed player stashed overseas.

With Jeremy Lin trade, Houston Rockets closing in on Chris Bosh signing

All signs point to Chris Bosh also leaving the Miami Heat.

The Houston Rockets will reportedly trade Jeremy Lin to the Los Angeles Lakers, creating enough cap space to sign Chris Bosh to the max of four years, $88 million and be able to match the Dallas Mavericks offer for restricted free agent Chandler Parsons in time. The Rockets firmly believe they can sign Bosh away from the Heat and are moving quickly to get it...
