NBA Free Agency Rumors 2012: Jeremy Lin, Houston Rockets To Meet Wednesday

Restricted free agent Jeremy Lin will meet with the Houston Rockets on Wednesday, according to a report from Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.

The Rockets have reportedly been unsuccessful while trying to negotiate with their own highly-touted free agent point guard, Goran Dragic, and might be moving on to Plan B.

Lin averaged 14.6 points and 6.2 assists during a breakout season this past year for the Knicks, but his season was cut short by left knee surgery.

Because of Lin's status as a restricted free agent, the Knicks can match any offer given to him. They are content with letting the market dictate his value before deciding whether it's worth it to keep him. With acquiring Steve Nash looking more unlikely by the day, the Knicks are likely to keep Lin as long as any offer sheet he signs is reasonable.
