    I can't find anything online about this rumor.

    Lin will be in Houston tomorrow. Why would anyone want to play in Houston instead of New York City? This rumor is highly unlikely

    This is a very homerish way of looking at it. If city x is paying a **** load more than NY Im going to city x probably..

    what scares me is that lin's injury may cause him to rethink things financially. If he can get as much $$$ as possible now, he can be financially safer later on in his career if it does become short-lived.

    I hope he doesn't think just in dollars though. If he does and he signs with the Rockets, he will be the most disappointing player in my eyes.

    only thing out there that says Lin could receive an offer sheet worth around 4 yrs 40 Million, nothing that he actually signed the offer sheet... but who knows...

    If Lin signs the "Poison Pill" deal in Houston, my biggest fear is the $$$$$ poisoning him........ He's also going to have "LeBron James" type pressure to bring that team (or the Knicks if they match) a title.

    And if he doesn't perform well, he'll face something he's never faced before- Boos from the home fans.

    It doesn't really matter what money he'll be offered, we'll match anyway. Dolan once paid >$60M in luxury tax while having only one valuable player on the roster. Calm down folks and stop acting like it's you who's going to pay the tax.

    U MADD BRO?

    if you think Lin is worth this then you are as stupid as the Rockets for offering it to him. Goran DRagic is better. The Knicks should be going after him. Don't get mad. Would you really feel good about the Knicks handing this type of money out to a guy who had a good few games in the league?
    I can name 3 PGs better and cheaper than Lin
    Sessions
    Maynor and Dragic AND Kirk Hinrich
    I can't believe you Knick fans die when mediocre players are OVERPAID

    Word is the offer will be a 3 year deal for 5, 5.2, 13. Makes more sense. They Rox showing Lin the love with a Welcome Back Jeremy sign with a picture of him in a Rockets jersey on their building.

    in the 3rd year of his deal with the Knicks, we'd have $70M tied up in 4 players.
    Well, the Rockets will have 30millions tied in Lin + Asik. Talk about nonsense.

    Let's wait for confirmation on this. I don't think they will make such an offer. In any case the Knicks will match. I don't care about money really, all this just means that Dolan will pay a ****load of money in 3 years, but it doesn't screw our flexibility because we will have none regardless.

    Well three year deal for $25 mil is doable, 4 year for $40 is pretty high but I don't see this stopping the knicks from still keeping him. It's not all about his play either, he brings publicity and there is alot of money to be made with marketing, selling tickets, jerseys and more. The luxury tax just got alot more expensive with the new CBA, but the knicks are one of the most lucrative teams in the league money wise. Dolan has always put out the money so it shouldn't be a problem.

    @alanhahn: Jeremy Lin was always going to play the field as a free agent, so the fact that he met with Houston and is expected to get a contract offer sheet promise today is of no surprise to the Knicks. This is Standard Operating Procedure. Knicks have 3 days to match after the moratorium lifts on July 11 and all indications are they will match, even if it means hefty luxury tax expenses in Year 3. That's how the Knicks show Jeremy just how much he means to them.

    Hahn has been known of his insight of the Knicks organization and if he says we're going to match no matter what I don't have any reason not to believe it's true. Lin's a lock, book it.

    I can see the Rockets throwing him some outrageous ridiculous contract
