The Ducks have made substantial progress in negotiations with Lin’s representatives, but the two sides are not yet ready to finalize a deal, according to a Sunday report in Beijing Youth Daily. In response to speculation on online streaming platform China Sports, the agency representing Lin said he hasn’t agreed to terms with any team. Though he was born in the US, Lin has family ties to China and is very popular with Chinese fans. During a visit to Shanghai last month he said that playing in the CBA would rate second only to a return to the NBA in terms of career fulfillment.
Chinese Basketball Association teams have been in touch with Jeremy Lin to offer the NBA free agent a contract, according to reports in mainland media. Basketball reporter Jia Lei, who has almost 1.4 million followers on his Sina Weibo, wrote on Sina Sports that several teams have contacted the player’s people to express an interest in bringing him to China. While negotiations are ongoing no specific details can be revealed, Jia wrote, though he confirmed Lin is giving them serious consideration.

Jeremy Lin open to China move

Jeremy Lin has said he is considering playing in the Chinese Basketball Association as he weighs up his next move during NBA free agency. “Of course I am thinking about the CBA,” Lin said in Guangzhou on Friday. “I don’t know where I will be next year, so I don’t have expectations. I know what level I can play at, so if I don’t get that I won’t settle.”

When asked about those who think he has no right to be upset given the success he’s had for a time in his nine-year NBA career, Lin replied that the message he had shared was from the heart. “I think showing weakness is one of the greatest signs of strength,” Lin told the audience Friday. “Ironically, to be able to be OK with your weakness is one of the strongest things you could do. Who doesn’t have weaknesses? We all do. But to show them is one of the strongest things you can do.

Emiliano Carchia: The deal between Jeremy Lin & CSKA Moscow falls apart, I am told. The free agent guard turned down CSKA Moscow’s proposal because he is not interested, at least for now, to sign in Europe. Lin awaits for NBA offer to come but if nothing happens, I wouldn’t rule out China for him.

Why hasn’t Jeremy Lin been signed? Maybe he’s just a backup now, but he has been a productive starting point guard for much of his career. — Robert Chen (Taipei) STEIN: Lin, remember, earned only 27 minutes of playing time during Toronto’s entire playoff run — and just one minute during the N.B.A. finals. Those were strong hints Lin would struggle in free agency after the Raptors acquired him in February shortly after trading for Marc Gasol. The reality is that Lin’s movement, at nearly 31, isn’t what it once was. Teams are unsure if he still has the mobility to play such a demanding position.

“I’ve given more of myself to God every single year and every year it gets harder. In English, there’s a saying, and it says, ‘once you’ve hit rock bottom, the only way is up,'” Lin said at an event in Taiwan. “Rock bottom just seems to keep getting more and more rock bottom for me. So free agency has been tough, because I feel like in some ways the NBA’s kind of given up on me. I always knew that if I gave anyone a reason to doubt, they would.”
“About five years ago, I began to consider whether I should play basketball in Asia because every year when I visit the region, I see so many fans, and they make me want to play a few seasons in the region,” Lin told reporters in Taipei. He said that because of the time difference, basketball fans in Asia have to get up early to watch NBA games, which is unfortunate. If the opportunity arises, as long as he is fit, Lin said, he would like play in the region. “I would consider it,” Lin said. “And of course, my greatest dream is to play on the same team with my younger brother.”

Posing with the Larry O’Brien trophy, and the glow of validation it signified, mattered. Every championship team has reserve players who are part of the group but don’t make an impact on the court. But not every reserve player carries with him the responsibility and burden of being the most prominent Asian-American basketball player in the world. If Lin’s story were only about basketball, it would have been over long ago. “I used to run from it, because that’s all anybody ever wanted to label me,” Lin, who is of Taiwanese descent, told reporters after his Raptors debut in February. “It was like, ‘Oh, he’s Asian, he’s Asian, he’s Asian.’”
Still, that man, Wataru “Wat” Misaka, has a place in the history books. Misaka was the first person of color to play professional basketball in what would become the NBA — breaking the color barrier the same year Jackie Robinson did in pro baseball. And Misaka did it in the aftermath of World War II, when the attack on Pearl Harbor and war with Japan prompted the U.S. government to imprison more than 100,000 people of Japanese ancestry in internment camps. Now, 72 years later, with the Raptors’ Game 6 win Thursday night, Jeremy Lin has become the first Asian American to win an NBA championship. (Lin only played for a few minutes during Game 3 of the Finals, but he will still get a ring along with the rest of his team.)
As he recently told the Bill Michaels Sports Talk Network, Lin was stopped by Fiserv Forum security as he tried to board the Raptors’ bus following the team’s Game 2 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern Conference Finals. Admittedly, the 30-year-old Lin did not have any identification on him. ‘After game two in Milwaukee, I was trying to get to the team bus and one of the dudes in the Milwaukee Arena just screams at me,’ Lin explained, as quoted by the South China Morning Post. ‘He’s like, “Where do you think you’re going?!” And I’m like, “Uh, I’m trying to get to the team bus.” He’s like, “What? Where’s your pass?”
It’s that dead-honest quality Russell most appreciates about the Nets’ trio of elder statesmen. Last season, most of those duties fell to Carroll because Jeremy Lin was away from the team rehabbing an injury. So, Carroll welcomed the addition this season of Davis and Dudley. “I don’t have to scream and yell at the guys all the time and they hear the same voice all the time,” Carroll said. “I think those guys really give me a lot of relief from that aspect. We take turns, and we know which guys like each other and which guys we can talk to more. It’s been key. Those two guys have been amazing.”
I heard this great quote from Jon Chu, the director of Crazy Rich Asians: ‘One is token, two is diversity.’ What is it like still being the only Asian-American in the NBA? Jeremy Lin: At times it kind of sucks. At other times it’s amazing. Amazing because you get to challenge everyone’s viewpoints and perspectives. I’m rooting for so many more Asians to come in. Last year, when I was with Brooklyn and we had Ding [Yanyuhang] on the summer league team, I was like, ‘Dude, please make the team. We’d have so much fun together during the season.’
Lin said he’s going to let his agent handle the potential buyout conversations. And in what could be a way to deflect giving a direct answer, he said he wasn’t aware of any talks between his agent and the organization in terms of a potential buyout. “Until I hear otherwise, I’m committed,” Lin said. “I’m here every day, and I think we’ve been playing good. I think in the last 25 games, we’re 12-13. We’re building something. I just want to stay healthy and enjoy the game, and I’ll let my agents do their work.”
If Lin’s representation can find a team that is willing to play him more than the time he’s getting now from the Hawks, he’ll likely request a buyout. Lin has been adamant that coming off the bench isn’t his preferred role, and it never will be. That’s just his competitive nature. “I’m going to try to do my best, though, with whatever assignment I have,” he said. “It doesn’t mean I don’t have aspirations to be a starter or to get heavy minutes or even to come off the bench and play more or be more involved. Those are all very real thoughts.”

The Athletic reported after the deadline had passed that the interest in Lin wasn’t as high as the Hawks anticipated it would be, and thus the veteran point guard remained on the roster. Lin said he felt there was just about a 10 percent chance he was going to get moved Thursday based on what his representation had told him. “I didn’t think it was a huge possibility, but I did think it was the highest in my career,” Lin said.

Blazers interested in Jeremy Lin

Portland, too, would be willing to part with its first-rounder to add depth to a roster that badly needs help in the backcourt and on the wing. The Trail Blazers could be a player for Ross or Simmons, too. But sources tell SN that they have expressed interest in another player expected to be made available for a first-round pick: Atlanta point guard Jeremy Lin.

In Atlanta, Lin has become a mentor for rookie point guard Trae Young. “I call him the stabilizer,” Hawks coach Lloyd Pierce said before the game. “He’s been a guy that coming off the bench, his experience, you know what you’re going to get from him especially in pick-and-roll. Whether we’re up or down what he does is he comes in and just impacts the game immediately just staying within himself.”
Despite being on a new team, Lin finds himself in a similar situation as he did in Brooklyn. He’s a veteran on a young rebuilding team and has an uncertain long-term future. In the meantime, Lin is making the most of his 18.4 minutes per game and averaging 10.8 points while shooting well from the field (.506), 3-point range (.418) and the free-throw line (.833) with 3.2 assists entering the game. If he keeps up this type of play, he could be a trade target for playoff teams in need of a backup point guard. “Unfortunately, he’s on a young team where I don’t know if winning is a priority to him, but I’m pretty sure he’s going to get on a team where he can help somebody, so he’s just got to keep a positive mindset and keep getting better because just his movement overall I can tell that he’s really worked hard to get back to where he’s at,” Nets forward DeMarre Carroll said.
SparkLabs Taipei, part of SparkLabs Group, the global network of accelerator programs and funds that works with emerging startup ecosystems, has raised $4.25 million in an initial close led by CTBC Group, along with individual investors, for its first venture capital fund. SparkLabs Taipei also announced today that it has added Atlanta Hawks player Jeremy Lin, who sparked “Linsanity” as the first player of Chinese- or Taiwanese-descent in the NBA, to its board of advisors.
Atlanta Hawks rookie Trae Young was thrilled to show off his first car, a new matte black $138,000 Audi R8, in July. Young’s teammates let his newness wear off a bit for bursting his proverbial bubble, and stuffed the new custom car with loads of popcorn Friday. The playful prank was documented by point guard Jeremy Lin.

The Harvard graduate told the Freakonomics Radio podcast of one of the most frustrating sides of injury – the reaction of fans. “I can’t tell you how many fans have come up to me and they’re like, “Man. you’re on my fantasy team and you got hurt. You hurt my fantasy team!”, he told host Stephen J Dubner, one half of the authors behind the Freaknomics books and series of spin-offs. “I’m like, ‘Are you comparing what I do and what I love and what keeps me up at night and the thing that I’ve put tens of thousands of hours into to your little fantasy thing that you just showed up for one day and did a 60-minute draft for?’

The front office also added Vince Carter and Jeremy Lin over the summer. What’s it like having those veterans around and what have they been telling you? Taurean Prince: It’s been great. They just tell me to keep my head, continue to push forward and don’t focus on any kind of outside things. They just want me to focus on the things that I can control. They want me to continue leading the team and be the kind of guy that everyone else can look up to – on and off the court. I want to grow every day with the team that we have and just continue to get better.
