Jeremy Lin and his puns appear to be on the move.
New York has decided that they will not match the Rockets offer sheet for Lin, which will send the Cinderella (or Linderellla) story to Houston. The Rockets will pay Lin $25 million over three seasons. Lin will earn $5 million in the first two years, but his payment (L)increases too $14 million in the final year.
The Knicks were worried about their (L)inability to pay the final year of his (L)inflating contract, leaving many Knick fans (L)infuriated.
The specific (L)incentives of the contract are not known.
The complete overhaul of the Houston roster is so baffling to decipher that I am (L)incapable of telling exactly who Lin will be teaming with when he becomes a Rocket.
Houston had three picks in the first round of this year's draft, which netted them Jeremy Lamb (UConn), Terrence Jones (Kentucky) and Royce White (Iowa State). Houston could be in the market for an (L)incubator to speed up the young teams growing process.
The team's coach, Kevin McHale, will stick with his original offense, despite such roster turnover. I imagine the challenges of (L)installing a new system would be a lot to handle for his young group.
Of course the biggest move that Houston could make would be landing Dwight Howard.
If the Rockets are able to land Howard, everything changes.
For now, Houston can celebrate the addition of Lin, who hopefully will provided stability at the point guard position. (L)inadequacy at that position almost always leads to missing the playoffs.
Deep (L)in the heart of Texas, Houston has found a point guard.Back to the Houston Rockets Newsfeed
