Jeremy Lin may have signed a three-year, $25.1 million deal with the Houston Rockets, but that doesn’t mean he’s too good to sleep on a couch like he did last season.

Lin must be getting ready to move into a new place in Houston before training camp begins, because he apparently texted teammate Chandler Parsons to ask if he could stay at his buddy’s while waiting for his place to get furnished. Parsons shared the following tweet containing a screengrab of a text from Lin:

Glad all that @nba money didn’t change him @jlin7. twitter.com/ChandlerParson…

— Chandler Parsons (@ChandlerParsons) September 16, 2012

Lin famously was living on his brother’s couch in New York before breaking out with the Knicks and ultimately getting added to the team’s roster for the rest of the season. Once he got a guaranteed contract with the Knicks, he moved out and got his own place. And even though he’s now set to make multi-millions guaranteed, he’s still not too cool to live on a couch.

But what was the funniest part about Parsons’ tweet? He shared it with the world before actually responding to Lin!

So answer the question…can i? Haha RT @chandlerparsons: Glad all that @nba money didn’t change him @jlin7. twitter.com/ChandlerParson…

Oh man, don’t you change, Jeremy. And if Parsons doesn’t let you sleep at his home, then you can always crash at Connor Barwin’s place.
