NBA Free Agency : Former Raptor Jeremy Lin slips further into ‘rock bottom’


The NBA free agency has brought depressing news for Jeremy Lin. Instead of hitting new highs as players like Zion Williamson or Kawhi Leonard did, Jeremy Lin has gone further down the pit. The first Asian of American descent to play in NBA, Jeremy Lin has failed to attract any franchise this time.

Jeremy Lin inspired little in Raptors’s win

Toronto Raptors created history by winning their first-ever NBA championship win in 2019. But guard Jeremy Lin had little part to play in the historic moment. Although he will forever feature in historic lineup lead by Kawhi Leonard, it’s hard to forget Jeremy Lin played as little as 27 minutes in the whole season.

Although Jeremy still packs a punch when it comes to what he has to offer, the league runs on future talent. It always paves way for the fact that Jeremy Lin is from Asia who are already rare in the NBA.

Lin could never find a permanent home despite Knicks heroics

The Chinese Lin is famously known for his stint at the New York Knicks. He unexpectedly turned out to be their hero in their 2012 win scoring 26.8 points per game. Linsanity was the term of the season as the Asian spitfire with his stunning play.

He featured in as many as 8 franchises throughout his career in NBA so far. The illustrious list included franchises like Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets. That franchises ignored him for newer talent this season hurt Lin is not a surprise anymore.

“There’s a saying, and it says once you hit rock bottom, the only way is up,” Lin said. “But, rock bottom just seems to keep getting more and more rock bottom for me.”

“So, free agency has been tough. ‘Cause I feel like, in some ways, the NBA has kind of given up on me.”

Although the NBA hasn’t found any buyers for Lin yet, overseas options are plenty. He can follow his brother’s career in Taiwan and Euroleague Champions CSKA Moscow are also looking to grab his services.

What follows is something to see but Lin must carry on plying his trade nonetheless because he still does have a lot to offer.
