Lin Rents NYC Financial District Condo: Report

New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin, who was sleeping on his brother’s couch less than a month ago, has rented a 1,182-square foot condominium in Manhattan’s financial district, FoxSports.com reports.

Lin, 23, has averaged 24.5 points and 9.4 assists while leading the Knicks to a 7-2 record since taking over as a starter on Feb. 6. The former Harvard University point guard has a base salary of about $762,000 this season.

Lin rented a two-bedroom suite at the W Hotel, upgrading from his brother’s apartment on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, Fox Sports said without citing the source of its information. Lin chose a mid-level unit in a complex where rents range from $3,600 to $8,900 a month, Fox Sports said.
