But if the Warriors and Lin are hoping for a possible reunion on the NBA state, the G League’s movement toward playing its season in a bubble could complicate that path. Similar to the NBA’s bubble to complete the suspended 2019-20 season, the G League is reportedly eyeing at least a partial season played at the Disney campus in Orlando with a tentative Feb. 8 tip off, according to The Athletic. According to the Athletic’s John Hollinger, the nature of a bubble may force teams to keep mostly separate their G League and NBA rosters.

Bobby Marks: Some clarification on the Jeremy Lin situation: 1. Regular season rosters do not have to be set until Monday Dec. 21 at 11PM ET. 2. GSW could still sign Lin on Monday (if they receive FIBA clearance) but would take on two-day financial penalty.
The Warriors’ plans to bring Jeremy Lin onto their G League team fell apart Saturday night, when Golden State was unable to receive his Letter of Clearance from FIBA by the deadline. Lin, who played with the Chinese Basketball Association’s Beijing Ducks last season, had arranged to be signed and waived by the Warriors so that he could land with their G League affiliate in Santa Cruz. But when that wasn’t possible, Golden State changed course, signing and waiving Elijah Pemberton so it could acquire his G League rights.
Jeremy Lin said Tuesday (Sep 15) he is leaving the Beijing Ducks after one season in China and wants to return to the NBA, where he sparked the “Linsanity” craze of 2012. The 32-year-old guard, who as a Toronto Raptors player in 2019 became the first Asian-American to win an NBA championship, signed for Beijing as an unrestricted free agent last year.
“This decision has really been the hardest in my life,” Lin, who has complained about the rough-house treatment he received in the CBA, told his seven million followers in a video on the Twitter-like Weibo. “Every morning I would wake up at 4am or 5am, thinking, thinking and thinking all the time. “In the end, although Shougang (the Ducks) has treated me incredibly well … giving me everything I wanted, in the end, I feel that I still have NBA dreams. “I still have time to play (there) and I have to chase this.”

Tom Orsborn: Pop attributes Spurs’ struggles to their injuries. “We have to have all our bodies. It’s tough on these guys. The way the team is right now, and having to compete at this level, if three or four or five of them are out, it’s really a difficult task for them.”
Sean Highkin: Chauncey Billups: “I woke up this morning with a big smile on my face at the news that Brittney Griner is coming home. … I mainly want to give a shoutout to the WNBA. They didn’t let a day go by without screaming ‘Free BG.’”
Kylen Mills: The Warriors said in a statement to @SFGate that they did their due diligence with the NBA in signing Anthony Lamb, because he is not a defendant in the civil lawsuit and was never charged they’ve indicated no plans of action unless new info comes to light. pic.twitter.com/xe3r841QDQ
