Houston Rockets, Jeremy Lin Agree To Offer Sheet: Report

Jeremy Lin

HOUSTON (AP) — A person with knowledge of the deal said Thursday that New York Knicks restricted free-agent guard Jeremy Lin and the Houston Rockets have agreed to terms on a four-year contract offer.
The person told The Associated Press on Thursday on condition of anonymity because the team hadn't officially announced the deal.

Senh: About $28M over four years. The Knicks will likely match that.
