Steve Clifford said that Jeremy Lin will see some time next to Kemba Walker in two-PG lineups this season.
"It’s always good to have two pick-and-roll players on the floor," Clifford said. "That way you can put pressure on the defense at one side, then switch it to the other. That makes more room to play similar to how Golden State does. You’ve got Steph [Curry] on one side, so defenses have to load up there, and then you’ve got Klay Thompson on the other with room to operate." It sounds like Lin could see minutes in the 20s for the Hornets this season, but he is still unlikely to emerge as a reliable asset in standard leagues while Walker is healthy. Aug 29 - 1:43 PM

The Hornets signed G Jeremy Lin with their biannual exception.

As a result, the team will now face a hard salary cap. Lin finds himself in an interesting situation under Steve Clifford given his penchant for loose defense and faces an uphill battle to carve out sustainable fantasy value in leagues with 12 teams or fewer for 2015-16.

Jeremy Lin's deal with the Hornets will be for two years and $4 million, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

Lin has no chance at starting in front of Kemba Walker, as long as he's healthy, so the days of him being a fantasy prospect are probably over for now.
Jul 8 - 10:06 PM

Jeremy Lin announced he will sign with the Hornets.

He announced it on his Instagram page. Lin is going to be the backup to Kemba Walker and the two should be on the court together, so Lin is likely looking at minutes in the mid-20s. He's only on the radar in 14-team leagues.

Jeremy Lin remains "likely" to wind up with the Mavericks.

Dallas is working on carving out the necessary salary space in order to add him to the fold, and it's possible the Mavs work out a sign-and-trade with the Los Angeles Lakers in order to get the deal done. It's not clear what Dallas could offer the Lakers in exchange for Lin's services, but the point guard was never going to return to LA after his underwhelming one-and-done season.
Jul 6 - 9:26 AM

The Mavericks have engaged the Lakers about a potential sign-and-trade deal for free agent Jeremy Lin.

It was reported on Saturday that Dallas is "firmly" in the mix for Lin, so this doesn't come as a surprise despite the Mavs' lack of cap space. Acquiring Lin would be a coup for the Mavs -- they hope to re-sign J.J. Barea in free agency, but at the moment Devin Harris and Raymond Felton are the only guards under contract.
Jul 5 - 6:45 PM

According to Marc Stein of ESPN, the Mavericks are still "firmly" in the mix for Jeremy Lin.

The Lakers, Pacers, Bulls, Clippers, Spurs, Grizzlies and Rockers are also rumored to be interested in Lin, but Dallas is easily the most desperate for a point guard. Lin would likely be the starter in Dallas with the way their roster is currently set up, so that would certainly be a best-case scenario for his fantasy value.
Jul 4 - 1:47 PM

Free agent Jeremy Lin has reportedly drawn interest from the Mavericks, Pacers, Bulls, Clippers, Spurs, Grizzlies and Lakers.

At the moment, the Mavericks are the only team on that list for whom Lin would be a likely starting PG. Lin had a bumpy season under coach Byron Scott last year, even losing his starting job to Ronnie Price, so he's probably not eager to compete for minutes with D'Angelo Russell and Jordan Clarkson in 2015-16.
Jul 1 - 11:25 AM

The Kings are reportedly interested in unrestricted free agent Jeremy Lin.

With Sacramento also said to be interested in Ty Lawson, Dennis Schroder, and Jrue Holiday, it seems apparent that they're looking to add another point guard to the roster. It's being reported that they would like this additional guard to play alongside Darren Collison, so while Collison's value would take a bit of a hit, it wouldn't be as dramatic as the decrease in value he'd see if he's forced to the bench.
Jun 30 - 4:41 PM

Jeremy Lin said he became burned out during the 2014-15 season.

"I felt pretty burnt out coming out of this past season," Lin said about 2014-15. "I felt like I gave great effort to play well, play the right way, and maintain the right perspective despite seeing very little fruit. So when the season first ended I felt very…lazy. I know it’s natural to feel worn out after a long year, but I was surprised by how drained I felt and how little excitement I felt to start my off-season training." Lin will be an unrestricted free agent this summer and will likely find a backup job after averaging 11.2 points and 4.6 assists per game, so fantasy owners should do themselves a favor and forget about Linsanity sd the 26-year-old is more of a late-draft flier unless he finds a starting job.
Jun 2 - 11:38 AM

Jeremy Lin refused to rule out a possible return to the Lakers next season.

Lin will be an unrestricted free agent in the summer, but it would definitely be a surprise to see him come back to the Lakers after such a tumultuous first season. He averaged 11.2 points and 4.6 assists per game, but he was outplayed by rookie Jordan Clarkson down the stretch and there was some tension between him and head coach Byron Scott, Lin's knee is also expected to make a full recovery without having a procedure, but we will track his progress very closely this offseason.
Apr 15 - 9:17 AM

Jeremy Lin said that his knee will not require a procedure, and he's close to being cleared for 1-on-1 drills.

Lin added that he's begun running and cutting, and it sounds like he'll be 100 percent healthy for the start of the 2015-16 season. Lin will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and given that he wasn't even able to get into Byron Scott's rotation until both Kobe Bryant and Ronnie Price were ruled out for the season, partnered with the emergence of Jordan Clarkson, it's very unlikely he'll be returning a Laker. Lin said his role and how he fits into a team's system will be his primary concern when selecting a team during free agency.
Apr 14 - 4:46 PM

Jeremy Lin (knee) has been ruled out for the remainder of the season according to head coach Byron Scott.

Lin's knee is still causing him problems, and the Lakers have no reason to risk his health. Lin will be a free agent in the summer, and it's hard to imagine seeing him back with the Lakers next season due to the emergence of Jordan Clarkson. Lin can be cut in all leagues, while Jabari Brown and Dwight Buycks should see a boost in value.
Apr 12 - 7:47 PM

Lakers' head coach Byron Scott said he doesn't expect Jeremy Lin (knee) to play Sunday vs. the Mavericks.

Lin will go through pregame warmups in hopes of playing tonight, but with the Lakers playing for draft picks, it’s very unlikely that he’ll play at less than 100 percent. Jabari Brown and Dwight Buycks will soak up his minutes, and Brown is worth a look in daily leagues after putting up 20 points and seven assists in his last outing.
Apr 12 - 2:15 PM

Jeremy Lin (knee) did not practice on Saturday.

He did some dribbling drills and didn't take contact with the team. An MRI confirmed Lin doesn't have any damage to his knee outside of an "abnormality" because of post-surgery results, but there's a very good chance he's out for the year. Jabari Brown looked great on Friday with 20 points and seven dimes in 38 minutes, so he's a sneaky player to add in all leagues. Dwight Buycks is also worth a look.
