The Boston Celtics attempted to acquire New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin twice when he was on waivers, according to CBS Boston.

The Celtics were beaten by the Houston Rockets who first claimed Lin last December when he was originally waived by the Golden State Warriors after only averaging 2.6 points per game last season.

Once again, Lin was waived by the Rockets and the Celtics were bested by the Knicks who were in need of support at the point guard position.
