And when the Rockets needed him, that’s exactly what he did.

In their search for a point guard that's included names like Boston's Rajon Rondo, Raptors guard Kyle Lowry and Atlanta's Jeff Teague, you can add the Rockets' Jeremy Lin to that list. ESPN's Chad Ford talked on Bill Simmons' podcast about the possibility, which The Sporting News' Tom Gatto transcribed: "I know another guy they'd love to get their hands on right now, and that's Jeremy Lin," Ford said. "And the question is, would Houston do it? I know the word is no, but maybe, to get out of that contract. Maybe if Iman Shumpert and Tim Hardaway Jr. are in the deal. Maybe." Newark Star-Ledger

Q: Do you see Morey making a deal by the deadline? he has always being one of the most active GM’s at the deadline. Bill Ingram: He’s definitely active . . .and it’s no secret who he’s looking to move. He’d love to turn Asik and Lin into a backup center and a long scorer who can defend. If the Rockets don’t make a move it won’t be for lack of trying, it will be for lack of good assets to move. Basketball Insiders
