It’s (all but) official: Jeremy Lin will be joining the Houston Rockets.

As Howard Beck of The New York Times first reported, the New York Knicks have declined to match the Rockets’ offer sheet to Lin, a restricted free agent, worth $25.1 million over three years. Lin will reportedly earn approximately $5 million in each of his first two seasons before the “poison pill” of his contract—nearly $15 million in year three—takes effect.

The list of those affected by Linsanity’s move to H-Town is a lengthy one to be sure, with plenty of interested parties falling on either side of the fence and some finding footing on both.
