NBA Free Agency: Jeremy Lin Wants To Stay In New York, Source Says

When news leaked on Sunday that it was unlikely that the New York Knicks would match the Houston Rockets offer for Jeremy Lin, the NBA world was shocked. Included in those should be Lin, who, according to the Yahoo! Sports, would like to stay in the Big Apple.

"He did not see this happening," Peter Diepenbrock, Lin’s coach at Palo Alto (Calif.) High School, told Yahoo! Sports. "He sounded surprised. He loves the New York fans. To have the experience that he had for the two months and for that to be over with, that’s quite a shock to the system. I think he really believed the Knicks would match whatever offer he got."

Regardless of how Lin feels, it seems as though he will be suiting up in Houston next season.
