Jeremy Lin lands in Houston
Fri, 20 Jul 2012 12:37p.m.
Jeremy Lin thought he'd be having this kind of news conference in New York.
Instead, he was talking about his new deal with the Houston Rockets on the same practice court where he worked in virtual anonymity seven months ago before he was waived.
Lin said he expected - and even preferred - to be re-signed by the Knicks after he electrified the city last season before he was sidelined by a knee injury. The point guard says he wouldn't have signed the Rockets' three-year, $25 million offer sheet "if I wasn't excited about the possibility of playing here as well."
Lin says the Rockets made a compelling pitch. And he says he's "texted back and forth" with former Rockets All-Star Yao Ming.
