Jeremy Lin has signed a three-year, $25.1 million offer sheet with the Houston Rockets. The deadline for the New York Knicks to match the offer for the 23-year-old point guard is Tuesday night. New York's pending trade for another point guard, Raymond Felton, which is expected to be finalized on Monday, has raised speculation that the Knicks will let the undrafted, twice-waived Lin walk rather than pay him nearly $15 million in the third year of his deal -- a salary that, according to The New York Times, could cost the team an extra $35 million to $45 million in luxury-tax payments in 2014-15.
