It is understood New York will match Houston’s offer after head coach Mike Woodson confirmed it without hesitation on Thursday. If they retain Lin, the Knicks will be set in the backcourt with future Hall of Famer Jason Kidd as his backup.
The Rockets are in need of a starting point guard after trading away Kyle Lowry for a future draft pick. The Rockets are also in contention for Dwight Howard.
