HOUSTON (AP) Jeremy Lin is finally getting his own bed.

The 6-foot-3 point guard who became an international phenomenon with the Knicks last season went through his first workout with the Houston Rockets on Tuesday.

Lin was waived by the Rockets last December, then picked up by the Knicks. He was hesitant to buy a home and slept on teammate Landry Fields' couch the night before his breakout game against New Jersey on Feb. 4.

Lin signed a three-year, $25 million contract with Houston over the summer. He arrived in Houston on Monday - but first asked teammate Chandler Parsons if he could "crash" on his couch until he bought furniture. He finally feels like he's found a home in Houston and one of his priorities is finding a comfortable bed.
