Jeremy Lin is expected to finalize a deal with the Golden State Warriors to join their G-League team, the Santa Cruz Warriors. Barring any set-back from the Chinese Basketball Association, he will be joining the team on an Exhibit 10 deal.
Although not joining the 15 man roster, Lin will be provided an opportunity to re-enter the NBA circuit after playing overseas last season. As an NBA professional, he has played for eight different teams, the first being the Warriors. Over that span, he has averaged 25.5 minutes of playing time, 11.6 points, 2.8 rebounds, 4.3 assists, and 1.1 steals while shooting 43.3 percent from the floor and 34.2 percent from beyond the arc. Should Lin return in good form and translate it onto the court, he has the potential to be a viable option off the bench to run the one position. For fantasy purposes, it would be best to fade Lin at this time. However, should he manage to find his way on the 15 man roster, he could make for an intriguing, long-shot flier in DFS formats.
Jeremy Lin has inked a deal to head to China, where he will play for the Beijing Ducks. He won his first NBA title with the Raptors, but only appeared in 31 total games last year.
Lin did not generate any interest from an NBA team this off-season, but could certainly make a return once the CBA season concludes.
Jeremy Lin is reportedly in advanced discussions to join the Beijing Ducks in the Chinese Basketball Association.
Lin has had trouble generating much interest from NBA teams this off-season, but it appears that he may be headed to China to extend his professional career.
Jeremy Lin got the start on Sunday with Kyle Lowry (ankle) out. However, he only played 17 minutes while scoring three points with two rebounds and three assists.
Lin started but it was Fred VanVleet who just returned from an injury that saw most of the minutes at PGs for the Raptors on Sunday. When Lowry returns, Lin could be squeezed out of the rotation now that VanVleet has returned.
Jeremy Lin had eight points, a rebound, and two assists during the Raptors 126-101 loss to the Cavaliers on Monday. He shot 3-of-9 from the field with one three-pointer in 21 minutes of action.
Lin has made a minimal impact with the Raptors averaging 7.7 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 2.6 assists in 10 games. His playing time could diminish even further when Fred VanVleet returns from injury later this month.
