Jeremy Lin's Twitter profile page (@JLin7) says it all doesn't it?

Last week, the Houston Rockets traded Lin and a future first-round pick to the Los Angeles Lakers, ESPN reported.

The Lakers were willing to make this deal because Lin is under contract for only one more season, therefore preserving the team's cap space next summer, according to league source. ESPN reports that the Lakers also covet draft picks, "after trading away their first-round picks in 2015 and 2017 to Phoenix and Orlando as part of the Steve Nash and Dwight Howard trades, respectively."
