Jeremy Lin Considering Four-Year Offer From Rockets Worth At Least $31 Million, According To Report

Free-agent point guard Jeremy Lin has drawn interest from a few teams, and has especially caught the eye of the Houston Rockets. The New York Knicks have the ability to match the Rockets' offer to Lin, but Lin is reportedly considering the current four-year offer from Houston.

Rockets general manager Daryl Morey had his second crack at Jeremy Lin yesterday and offered him a back-loaded deal worth at least $31 million, and he was mulling it over late last night.

Because the Knicks were ditched by Steve Nash, sources have indicated the club is as intent as ever in matching any Lin offer sheet before the free-agent signing moratorium ends July 11.

Lin was released by Houston 12 days into training camp last season, which allowed the Knicks to claim him. After losing Goran Dragic, the Rockets are in the hunt for a new point guard and appear willing to give Lin a second chance with the club, admitting their mistake of waiving him last season.
