The Rockets needed to take a few steps in order to clear the cap room to sign a max free agent this summer. Wednesday’s Omer Asik deal took care of Part I. Part II may not be far behind.
Rival exec tells me Rockets already have a Jeremy Lin deal lined up and ready to execute if they need the cap room to sign Melo or LBJ.
