Jeremy Lin is expected to return to the Knicks, despite agreeing to a four-year, $28.8 million offer from the Rockets.
Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey has a plan. He's going to steal your favorite team's restricted free agent or he's going to make you pay a ton to keep them, especially if you're already over the salary cap. Morey already offered a huge contract to Bulls back up center Omer Asik. Chicago is already paying the luxury tax thanks to Derrick Rose and...
