The New York Knicks may have to patch things up with Jeremy Lin.
According to a report by the New York Daily News, Lin is upset that the Knicks didn’t offer him a new contract before the Houston Rockets came calling with a lucrative offer sheet.
Lin has verbally agreed to sign a four-year offer sheet with the Rockets. The deal reportedly is worth $28.8 million, with $10.2 million coming in the first two seasons and over $9 million in each of the last two.
Despite the Knicks insisting they would match the Rockets’ offer, Lin still feels slighted, according to the Daily News.
“He was surprised that the Knicks didn’t make the first move,” a league source told the paper. “They know they’ve got to mend some fences with him because he believes what the Rockets have told him, that the Knicks weren’t as interested as they are.
