Lin spent much of last offseason questioning where he would find a place in the NBA, let alone knowing if he'd find a place at all.
After spending time in Golden State and then Houston, it turned out he did find a home, and as the Knicks dug deep in their bench, "Linsanity" emerged.
The offseason brought many questions for Lin. The most important was where he would end up.
After agreeing to an offer sheet with the Rockets, the belief was that Lin's return to New York was a foregone conclusion.
As the process dragged on, the likelihood of the Knicks actually matching Houston's offer was waning. They ultimately decided to let him walk after making moves to bring other point guards in.
With his free-agency status settled, Lin embarked on a tour that started in Taiwan before returning to Houston to begin a new chapter in his career.
