Remember when "Linsanity" swept through New York and led to immediate creation of Jeremy Lin jerseys and tons of other memorabilia? Well, that may soon be a thing of a past. Lin has agreed to the offer sheet from the Houston Rockets worth $28.8 million over 4 years. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the deal is heavily back-loaded with Lin set to earn "$5M in year one, $5.2M in year two and $9.3M in years three and four."
Now, the Knicks will need to figure out whether or not they want to match the offer or let the 23-year-old point guard go to Houston. With a new-look backcourt already in place after the signing of Jason Kidd, did New York's decision just get easier or harder? Guess that's for management to decide. Stay tuned.
