In a potential cap-clearing move to make room for Chris Bosh, the Rockets have a deal in place to send Jeremy Lin to the Sixers, according to league sources. The deal hinges on whether LeBron James goes to Cleveland. If he returns to the Cavs, then Bosh is almost guaranteed to also leave Miami and head to Houston. To give Bosh a four-year, $88 million deal, the Rockets have to create cap space and can do that by trading Lin, the ex-Knick who will make almost $15 million next season. New York Daily News

According to LibertyBallers.com, the Rockets and Sixers have agreed in principle on a trade that would send point guard Jeremy Lin and a first-round pick to Philadelphia to create cap space for Houston to add a maximum-contract player such as Bosh. Multiple reports earlier in the week said the Rockets have offered Bosh a max contract in the event they could trade Lin, who is owed $15 million next season with $8.4 million of that counting against the cap. However, an NBA source said the Sixers "remain an option [for Houston], but their cap space may prove too expensive." The source also said they believe the Rockets have other options when it comes to moving Lin. CSNPhilly.com
