Rockets GM Regrets Cutting Knicks PG Jeremy Lin

Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey regrets cutting New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin, according to ESPN.

The undrafted former Harvard star Jeremy Lin has surprised many NBA fans and coaches with his phenomenal play the past three games, in which he has averaged 25.3 points.

In his first start this season against the Utah Jazz, with both Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony out, Lin stepped up to the challenge and scored 28 points with seven assists leading the Knicks to a 99-88 victory.  He was acquired by the Knicks off of waivers two days after he was released by the Rockets last December.  Lin and the Knicks (11-15) next game is against  Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers (14-11) tomorrow at Madison Square Garden.
