When the new Knick star first spread Linsanty upon the nation, he was crashing on his brother’s couch with no home to call his own.
However, he just signed up for a furnished Sunshine Select Residence at the W Downtown hotel and residences [pictured at left], according to the New York Post. The Wall Street Journal says Lin got “a better deal” for the apartment than the listed monthly rent of $13,000.
Earlier, the New York Daily Newsreported that Lin had sublet an apartment from former Knick David Lee at Trump Tower in suburban White Plains for about $3,800 a month. The newspaper said it used to belong to Amar’e Stoudemire before Lin’s teammate moved to swankier digs in Manhattan. The Journal says Lin never actually lived there.
Fellow B-baller Lamar Odom, who plays for the Dallas Mavericks, also livesin a W Hotel and residences building with his wife, Khloe Kardashian. Among the amenities for W residents are a digital gaming lounge and a rooftop terrace. It’s not the fanciest apartment available in the building. Lin opted for a mid-level apartment, the Post says. Still, he’s gone a long way from couch-surfing in just a few weeks.
