Jeremy Lin's brief, but amazing New York Knicks career could come to a surprising end soon. Here's the latest from the New York Post:
At the beginning of the summer, Lin re-signing with New York seemed like one of the more likely contracts to happen, but the Knicks decided that keeping him wasn't best for the organization.This is a free agent move that cannot be graded until a few years from now because Lin's NBA career is still very young. He could have success with the Rockets, but he will never be a superstar.
