The rumor going around the NBA is that PG Jeremy Lin will be traded to the Philadelphia 76ers for the upcoming 2014-15 season, so that the Houston Rockets can have enough money to try and sign free agent forward Carmelo Anthony.  The Rockets gave number 7 jersey to Carmelo Anthony in a billboard advertisment, the same number 7 that Jeremy Lin has worn with the Houston Rockets, COINCIDENCE ??

The 76ers have the money to handle the last year of the Jeremy Lin 8 million dollar contract, and if the deal goes through and they decide to keep Jeremy Lin early on in the 2014-15 season, the Sixers could see a new walkup attendance BUMP of about 1000 to 1500 Asian Americans that will buy tickets to watch Jeremy Lin play in Philly.   Talk show hosts in Philly call Jeremy Lin, just a backup to Michael Carter-Williams at the PG spot, but EUROJOHNBBALL thinks that if the Sixers keep Jeremy Lin, he would play many minutes at the shooting guard spot, because of his good 3 point stroke.

The rumor is that Philly wants a first round pick to come from the Rockets, in order to take the Jeremy Lin salary in 2014-15, but EUROJOHNBBALL thinks that the best move for the Sixers and GM Sam Hinkie to do, is ask for the Draft Rights to soon to be 24 year old 6 foot 8 inch, 230 pound Greek SF Kostas Papanikolaou, that the Rockets own.  Houston got the rights to Papanikolaou in a trade with Portland, after the New York Knicks drafted him in the 2012 NBA draft with the 48th pick in the Second Round.

-   Kostas Papanikolaou now plays with FC Barcelona in Spain and has two years left on his deal, with NBA buyout clause for both the 2014 and 2015 off seasons, but chances of him coming over in 2014-15 are very low, but since the Sixers are trying to put a championship roster together for the FUTURE, Papanikolaou is even better than a late first round pick from the Rockets, because Papanikolaou in a WINNER that now has won 3 straight titles in his young European league career and their was a late push to make him an NBA first round pick in 2012, as the OKC thunder and Miami Heat were thinking of taking him, after EUROJOHNBBALL wrote a piece and Yahoo Sports Top NBA writer Adrian Wojnarowski saw the EUROJOHNBBALL piece and asked around with his great sources and TWEETED out Kostas Papanikolaou was gaining momentum to be an NBA first round pick .    Like EJBB was saying Kostas Papanikolaou is a better piece to the Sixers CHAMPIONSHIP FUTURE, even more than a late future NBA first round pick, because Kostas Papanikolaou has won at every level and league in his European career, as he led the Greek U-18 national team to a GOLD Medal in 2008, another GOLD Medal in the 2009 European Championships in the U-20, he helped Vassilis Spanoulis and Olympiacos win the 2012 Euroleague championship and helped SHUT DOWN regular season MVP Andrei Kirilenko, while being perfect and CLUTCH on the offensive end, in a DRAMATIC comeback victory, then helped Olympiacos win their FIRST Greek A1 title in 2012 since 1997, another Euroleague title in 2013 with Olympiacos versus the Deep Real Madrid squad and in 2014, he helped his new FC Barcelona squad defeat Real Madrid in the DEEP Spanish ACB title,  in other words the Greek SF has TONS of championship games in his past and is not afraid of THE BIG STAGE MOMENT.   The Sixers took Dario Saric the most versatile offensive player in the 2014 NBA draft with their 10th pick, something EUROJOHNBBALL drilled on the homepage of the website for over a month,  Sam Hinkie and EJBB think the same on the direction of the future, with the Dario Saric pick and grabbing the rights to Kostas Papanikolaou would be the perfect move, as Dario Saric and Papanikolaou could both come over to the Sixers for the 2016-17 season and both players have led Greece and Croatia to Gold Medals in European titles, Papanikolaou winning back to back Euroleague titles with Vassilis Spanoulis and Dario Saric leading Cibona to the Adriatic league title as the MVP, as just a 20 year old player.
