While the NBA is in a holding pattern until LeBron James decides where he will play this upcoming season, the Sixers have done some work behind the scenes. A source tells Liberty Ballers that the Houston Rockets and Philadelphia have agreed in principle to send point guard Jeremy Lin to the Sixers, as well as a first round pick.

Philadelphia's interest in a trade for Lin was first reported several days ago by ESPN's Marc Stein and LB's own Jake Fischer.

Word of which first round pick the Rockets would be trading, whether their own or the New Orleans Pelicans' 2015 first round pick acquired in the Omer Asik trade, is unknown. Lin, 25, is due $14.89 million in 2014-15, yet holds a cap hit of just over $8.37 million. In 71 games with the Rockets last year, Lin averaged 12.5 points per game on 44.6% shooting from the floor.
