Will Jeremy Lin play for the Houston Rockets next season? Despite the fact that Jeremy Lin will sign an offer sheet with the Rockets that calls for him to be paid up to $30 million over four seasons, don’t expect him to change addresses anytime soon. Jeremy Lin will be kept by the New York Knicks after the Knicks match the offer.
Last season with the Knicks, Jeremy Lin averaged 14.6 points, 6.2 assists and 1.6 steals in 26.9 minutes per game. He shot 44.6% from the field, 32% on three-pointers and 79.8% at the line. Those stats were enough to make him a cult hero.
Even if the Knicks don’t think Jeremy Lin is worth $30 million on the basketball court, they would still match the offer. The amount of attention he brings to the team is worth that much and more.
