Jeremy Lin Still Needs Couch to Crash on After Signing Huge Deal in Houston


A Harvard education and a $25 million NBA contract apparently doesn’t absolve someone from having to sleep on his co-workers’ furniture.

Jeremy Lin has both of those things but apparently is still in need of somewhere to lay his head at night. Having just signed a monster deal (three years, $25 million) with the Houston Rockets, the logistics of relocating have not gone quite as smoothly as Lin would have liked, resulting in Lin asking teammate Chandler Parsons for a favor.

Lin became something of a folk hero when he scored 25 points with seven assists and five rebounds against the Nets on Feb. 4 the night after sleeping on teammate Landry Fields‘ couch. That game was the beginning of the “Linsanity” phenomenon that sent Lin into the national spotlight and the Knicks into NBA relevancy.

Now eight months and $25 million later, Lin still just needs somewhere to rest his head.
