NEW YORK (AP) -- New York Knicks sensation Jeremy Lin, who famously slept on a teammate's couch the night before his breakout performance, now has an apartment of his own. The 2-bedroom rental is on the 38th floor of the residences at the W New York Downtown Hotel and overlooks the Statue of Liberty. The Wall Street Journal (http:on.wsj.comysuyoH ) 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 contract before he got his own apartment. In the meantime, he stayed with his brother and a teammate. Lin is now signed with the Knicks through the season.
