Well, NBA basketball player Jeremy Lin didn’t have much time to settle down at the Houston Rockets. He’s already been traded to the New York Knicks:
The New York Knicks have claimed guard Jeremy Lin off waivers to fill a void at backup point guard. Lin was released Sunday by the Rockets to make roster room for Houston’s signing of Samuel Dalembert. … The Knicks, who last week claimed sharpshooter Steve Novak off waivers, needed another guard after rookie Iman Shumpert suffered a knee injury in New York’s Christmas Day win over Boston. New York is also still waiting for recently signed point guard Baron Davis to recover from a back injury in order to thrust him into the starting lineup.
