Jeremy Lin shoots down trade rumors
Jeremy Lin is shooting down trade rumors involving him.
On Wednesday, NBA host/reporter Mitch Lawrence reported that the Thunder were talking to the Brooklyn Nets about a potential trade involving Carmelo Anthony. Lawrence said that the Nets want to trade Lin.

Lin was asked about the report and said that the Nets would have informed him if they were planning to trade him. Hence, he doesn’t think the report is legitimate.
Jeremy Lin had said if #Nets were planning to trade him they’d tell him. I asked him if he’d gotten that call yet. “No, I didn’t. My agent called me just to clarify. But no, I don’t think there’s any. I don’t think that has any truth to it.” @JLin7

Lin may not exactly be in the loop here considering this isn’t the first time he’s been mentioned in trade reports. Lin has only played in 37 games for the Nets over the past two seasons due to injuries. Though he’s recovery from knee surgery, his $12.5 million expiring contract makes him a somewhat attractive trade chip.
