NBA Trade Rumors, 12th Jan 2019: Bradley Beal not joining Lakers, Sixers target big man and more
#2 Jeremy Lin could be heading to the Trail Blazers
The Portland Trail Blazers currently sit 4th in the Western Conference standings with a 26-17 record, and Sean Deveney is reporting that the team is looking to tighten their grip on a playoff spot by targeting Atlanta Hawks point guard, Jeremy Lin:
Sources tell SN that Portland Trail Blazers have expressed interest in another player expected to be made available for a first-round pick: Atlanta point guard Jeremy Lin. When the Hawks traded for Lin last summer, the hope was that he could be a veteran presence for the first part of the season for young point guard Trae Young, then could be swapped for a rebuilding asset to help the woebegone Hawks' future.
Lin joined the Hawks back in July of 2018, and so far this season the 30-year-old is averaging 10.9 points, 3.5 assists, and 2.4 rebounds in 19.4 minutes per game.Published 12 Jan 2019, 18:15 IST
