Report: Jeremy Lin could be traded by Nets
Despite appearing in only 37 games over two seasons with the Brooklyn Nets, Jeremy Lin may be on his way out of town.
Brian Lewis of the New York Post reported this week that multiple league sources have heard that the veteran guard could be traded this offseason. Lewis also says that the Orlando Magic would be a logical landing spot, citing Lin’s familiarity with head coach Steve Clifford from their days in Charlotte.
Lin, 29, is an interesting trade chip as his $12.5 million deal is expiring. But he has yet to play since rupturing his patellar tendon in the opening game of last season and was also plagued by a hamstring issue the year before that.
Lin did say that he was planning to play “safer” following his latest injury, but regardless, the Nets may just see him as a sunk cost at this point.
