Lin figures to be a nice depth piece for Toronto. He’s played in 51 games for Atlanta this season, coming off the bench in all but one of them. He’s chipped in 10.7 points per game in less than 20 minutes per game, so he is capable of contributing some quick scoring to the equation.
One of the most famous moments of Lin’s career came in Toronto. Perhaps playing there full-time will help rekindle some of the old Linsanity magic.
