HOUSTON (AP)Jeremy Lin became a Broadway sensation, a coveted free agent and a marketable star in Asia, all in less than a year.

In Houston, Lin will return to a role he used to enjoy at Harvard — team leader.

The rebuilt Rockets met with the media on Monday before heading south to begin training camp, and they’re turning to their charismatic new point guard for leadership and direction.

The 24-year-old Lin is hardly a seasoned veteran, with only 25 starts in the NBA. It just seems that way, after Lin soared to international stardom during a remarkable run with the New York Knicks last February.

He’s still more experienced than most of Houston’s roster, reshaped with young players during a hectic offseason.
