NEW YORK (AP) -- Two people with knowledge of the plans say Jeremy Lin will visit the Houston Rockets on Wednesday, and the New York Knicks guard is expected to get a contract offer.

The Rockets waived Lin last year and he was claimed by the Knicks, turning into a breakout star when he landed the starting point guard job. Now with Goran Dragic not expected to return, Houston may want Lin back.

One of the people tells The Associated Press on Tuesday the Rockets are planning to make Lin a multiyear offer, though the Knicks can match it and have said they intend to keep the restricted free agent. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the negotiations were to remain private.
