 HOUSTON (AP) - Jeremy Lin became a Broadway sensation, a coveted free agent and a merchandising magnet in Asia, all in less than a year.
In Houston, Lin will return to a role he used to enjoy at Harvard - team leader.
The rebuilt Rockets met with the media on Monday before heading south to begin training camp, and they'll turn to their charismatic new point guard for leadership and direction.
The 24-year-old Lin is hardly a seasoned veteran with only 25 starts in the NBA. It just seems that way after Lin soared to international stardom during a remarkable run with the New York Knicks last February.
The Rockets offered the restricted free agent a three-year deal worth about $25 million. The Knicks backed off, and Lin returned to the team that cut him last December.
