Nate Robinson tells Jeremy Lin to come play in BIG3
Jeremy Lin is extremely discouraged with the lack of interest NBA teams have showed in him since the start of free agency, but Nate Robinson says an opportunity awaits if Lin has interest in the BIG3.
Robinson, who is a co-captain of the BIG3’s Tri-State team, saw Lin’s speech over the weekend where he became emotional about teams not wanting to sign him. Robinson said in an Instagram post that he knows how that feels and encouraged Lin to sign with the BIG3.
Lin was in tears during a trip to Asia when speaking to a crowd about how “the NBA’s kind of given up on me.” The 30-year-old spent part of last year with the Atlanta Hawks before finishing with the NBA champion Toronto Raptors. He averaged 9.6 points per game.
Lin will have opportunities to play overseas if no NBA team signs him, and that may be a better option at this point than the BIG3. However, the league now has a contract with CBS and appears to be growing. Lin may take that into consideration.
