Jeremy Lin Likely Headed Back to Houston Because Of This Reason

- in Houston Rockets, Rumors

Jeremy Lin has been on five teams in his NBA career and it looks like he may revisit one of those teams if the cards are right. Lin was given the most money on the Houston Rockets and for good reason after Linsanity.

Ric Bucher reports that it is likely Lin could land back on the Rockets because of his amazing relationship with Mike D’Antoni. D’Antoni, who some believe was the orchestrator of Linsanity, could also make a push to get Lin back in a Rockets uniform:

The Rockets and Mike D’Antoni have an ‘inside track’ to Jeremy Lin ‘because of their history’

–va Ric Bucher

If Lin returns on the Rockets, you can best Houston will be quite pleased as one of their marquee players will be back in action. Lin would fit great in D’Antoni’s system as a run and gun shooter.

Lin had an amazing season in Charlotte and looks to continue his quest for recognition as the only asian player in the NBA today. With Lin in Houston, he could serve as a great backup to James Harden and Patrick Beverly.

    Agreed would like to see him back in New York to be honest. James Harden is a ball hog and Lin needs the ball as a pg. .

    As a Rockets fan, it would be somewhat of a pleasant homecoming, but I’m not sure if his inclusion will truly help us contend. However, it would be great for business considering the organization has strong ties and marketability in China.

    It would be nice to have him, but it would be better to have someone else too.
