BEIJING - The Houston Rockets' Jeremy Lin says he's looking forward to matching his game with that of newly acquired star Dwight Howard.

Lin told reporters on a visit to Beijing that he saw a natural affinity in the pair's affection for the pick-and-roll game.

The point guard also said it was too early to talk about his future in Houston after his first season in which he started all 82 regular-season games and averaged more than 13 points and six assists.

Lin had become a star with the Knicks the previous season and started the "Linsanity" craze that captivated fans in China. Lin was in China to oversee a basketball camp.

Howard transferred from the Lakers following a push by former Houston greats, including China's Yao Ming.
