Rockets meeting with Jeremy Lin on Wednesday, set to offer $8 million per year reportedly http://dlvr.it/1pJVJ3
Jeremy Lin will be in Houston on Wednesday meeting with the Houston Rockets front office. At that time, Daryl Morey is prepared to offer a deal averaging at roughly $8 million per year. Where did we get that number from? The Houston Chronicle is reporting that Lin will receive a similar offer to what Goran Dragic declined during his own contract negotiations with the Rockets. On Sunday, an article stated that Goran Dragic had turned down a contract offer averaging $8 million per season.
A day after Goran Dragic turned down the Rockets offer to return to Houston, the Rockets set up a meeting on Wednesday in Houston with Knicks’ restricted free agent Jeremy Lin, whom the Rockets released in December after a brief time with the team during training camp, a person with knowledge of the plans said Tuesday. .... According to a person familiar with the Rockets plans, they would offer a contract similar to the deal that Dragic turned down.
I dunno, 8M per seems a bit much for a guy who played, what, 25 games?
