When Jeremy Lin burst on to the scene as the New York Knicks' starting point guard last season, he did so while sleeping on his brother's couch. Some things never change, according to a tweet from Lin's new Houston Rockets teammate Chandler Parsons.

However, it now appears that Lin isn't opposed to some couchsurfing after his big payday.
