The Wall Street Journal (http://on.wsj.com/ysuyoH ) reports that
Lin signed the contract Wednesday.
The apartment was listed at $13,000 a month. Matthew Moinian,
the son of W’s developer, says Lin got a better deal, but he
declined to disclose the price.
Lin was waiting to see if the Knicks would guarantee him a

Lin is now signed with the Knicks through the season.
