BEIJING (AP) - Jeremy Lin said Sunday he's looking forward to pairing up with the Houston Rockets' newly acquired star Dwight Howard.
Lin told reporters on a visit to Beijing that he saw a natural affinity in the pair's affection for the pick-and-roll game.
Howard signed with Houston after playing for the Lakers, following a strong push by former Rockets starts, including Hakeem Olajuwon and China's Yao Ming.
The Rockets went 45-37 during Lin's first season with the team and lost to the Oklahoma Thunder in the first round of the playoffs. The addition of Howard is expected to put the team in contention for a title.
