Jeremy Lin To Be Signed by Warriors, Celtics or Bucks?

Is Jeremy Lin going to be signed by the Warriors, Celtics or Bucks?

Lin, 31, found himself outside of the NBA this year after winning the first championship of his career with the Toronto Raptors.

Currently he is playing for the Beijing Ducks of the Chinese Basketball Association, but in light of Carmelo Anthony’s career resurrection, some are now wondering if a return is possible.

In his final NBA season Lin averaged 7 points, 2.2 assists and 2.6 rebounds in 18.8 minutes per game.

Obviously those stats will not set the world ablaze, but clearly he can still contribute in limited minutes to some ball club.

Where would Lin fit most naturally?

There are three options: Golden State, Boston and Milwaukee.

The Warriors make a lot of sense given how ravaged they have been by injuries.

With both Steph Curry and D’Angelo Russell out with various ailments, Lin would have the opportunity to provide some veteran leadership to a young team full of players nobody has ever heard of. Plus, from a marketing standpoint, Lin is huge in the bay given the large Asian population.

Boston would also be a good pick. The Celtics are good so long as Kemba Walker is healthy, but if anything happens to him, the team’s guard cupboard suddenly looks very bare.

Finally, don’t sleep on the Bucks. The team lost a bit of depth at the guard spot from last year when Malcon Brogdon went to the Indiana Packers. While Lin obviously would not fill that hole, he could go some ways in helping patch it up.

  1. But he has a contract with his current Chinese team… How can he sign with any of the mentioned NBA teams this year when he is already in a contract with another team? Please explain… Thank you.

  2. Carlos, you have his averages wrong for last year. You just did the Toronto stats. For the full season, including Atlanta, he averaged 10 ppg with 4 assists and 2 rebounds. He played much better with the Hawks but ran out of gas with the Raps, undoubtedly due to the long rehab season catching up with him.
