NY Knicks breakout star Jeremy Lin -- the no-name from Harvard who's been sleeping on his brother's couch -- has some great news ... HE'S FINALLY MOVING INTO HIS OWN PLACE!!

Lin broke the news in D.C. yesterday on his way to the team bus ... telling a photog, "Yeah, I'm gonna go get my own place soon."

23-year-old Lin has been taking the NBA by storm ... ever since the Knicks threw the undrafted Ivy leaguer into the lineup earlier this month.

Lin had told reporters he was staying on his brother's couch, because he didn't have a guaranteed contract and he wanted more career security before plunking down his hard-earned cash on a pad.

But now that he's been KILLING it around the league, dropping 23 points and 10 assists against the Wizards last night ... seems Lin is confident this whole basketball thing could actually work out.

"Many of those other athletes who are flaunting and balling for the world to see can learn a lesson or two from this guy."

you do realize that up until a few days ago this guy wasn't sure how long he was going to be on the team. He had been a D-League player and cut from the Warriors. So it's not like he was making a ton of money to begin with.

Yea. But if you see how much his contract is for, you guys are gonna flip, he's only getting $800K. Just $50k more than the NBA minimum, is that shi**y or what?

Hard to find humble superstars nowadays without getting too big headed in the game just bc he turned into an overnight sensation. He isn't an overnight sensation, he's been killing it on the courts. It just took a while for people to recognize talent since he's a yellow brother of God
