To help Young develop as a leader and hasten his learning curve as a floor general, Schlenk acquired Jeremy Lin in a trade with Brooklyn. Lin was a rookie in Golden State when Schlenk worked in the front office there. “From what I’ve heard, he’s going to be a great mentor for me,” Young said of Lin. “We’ve been talking. He’s a good dude. He’s been through the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. He’s seen it all, so I’m looking forward to picking his brain.”
Lin — who is Tsai’s favorite player — was dealt to Atlanta last month, but Tsai, Spencer Dinwiddie and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson all played in Lin’s “Hoops for Hope” charity game in Shenzhen, China, last weekend. Hollis-Jefferson got hurt in the game, but the team’s acknowledgement of the injury failed to mention Lin or the philanthropic event.
Len finished the season third in screen assists per 36 minutes (6.7) and fifth in rebounding box outs per 36 minutes (13.2). In fact, Len has it in mind that his role will include setting lots of picks for players like Trae Young and Jeremy Lin. “When you have someone like Trae,” Len said, “you’ve got to get him open, so it’s about setting great screens and rolling hard to the rim. It’s going to open up shots for him and plays for guys around me.”
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, playing in Jeremy Lin, suffered an injury while playing in a charity event sponsored by Jeremy Lin Saturday night in Shenzhen, China. The Nets are aware of the injury but details so far are scarce, a situation hampered by a 12-hour time gap between Shenzhen and New York. According to an eyewitness at the “Hoop for Hope” event, Hollis-Jefferson went up for a dunk and on landing felt pain. He spoke to Lin, then headed directly to the locker room. He did not return and wasn’t in a post-game team photo either.
