In 2010, Lin signed for a two-year contract with the Golden State Warriors. The contract stipulates that Lin was to receive almost $5o0,000 as his first year salary, and half of it is guaranteed. After playing for Houston Rockets for a relatively short period of time, Jeremy Lin began playing for the New York Knicks.
Despite the fact that Lin was hailed by the New York Times as the most popular player of the decade, Knicks still urged Lin to seek for better offers from other teams. In 2012, Lin signed a 3-year $25 million contract with the Houston Rockets. The contract states that Lin will receive $5 million and $5.225 million on his first two years and on his final year, he will receive a total of $14.8 million.
