Jeremy Lin said that he's "extremely excited" for the opportunity to be a leader on the Nets.
In addition to being Brooklyn's unquestioned starting point guard, he's going to be one of the Nets' primary weapons on offense, so he could be in a for a career-year running in Kenny Atkinson's uptempo offense. Lin had a very nice preseason with averages of 17.2 points, 5.6 assists, 2.0 triples and 1.4 steals per game on a ridiculous 61.9 percent shooting, so it looks like the work Lin put in on improving as a shooter this summer have paid off. He'll be worth a mid-round pick on draft day. Oct 23 - 2:07 PM

Jeremy Lin was busy again on Thursday, scoring 24 points with 10 assists, two steals, eight turnovers and two 3-pointers.

Is Linsanity back? One interesting item from the preseason is coach Kenny Atkinson upping his team's pace to a head-turning 105.7 this preseason. While preseason pace numbers are inflated, that's still a massive bump from last year. Lin is going to be one of the focal points of the offense as he helps set up Brook Lopez. He was also outstanding in the preseason, scoring 17.2 points per game on a magnificent 77.3 true shooting percentage. The new role and system have moved him back into the mix as a mid-round pick.
Oct 20 - 11:01 PM

Jeremy Lin, Sean Kilpatrick, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Justin Hamilton and Brook Lopez will start vs. the Celtics on Monday according to Nets PR.

This means that Randy Foye and Trevor Booker will head to the bench Monday. Coach Atkinson has made it clear that he hasn't decided on a starting lineup for opening night, but it seems like the only locks to start are Lin, RHJ and Lopez.
Oct 17 - 6:36 PM

Jeremy Lin scored 16 points with five assists, three boards, one steal, two treys and two turnovers vs. the Heat on Tuesday.

Lin was 5-of-8 from the field and 4-of-5 from the charity stripe. He's off to a fast start with his new team and is coming off a 21-point outing in 17 minutes in his debut on Thursday. Lin is also a combined 7-of-11 from beyond the arc, so he's going to have the green light this season. If you want him on your fantasy team, be prepared to pounce in the middle rounds.
Oct 11 - 10:21 PM

Jeremy Lin, Joe Harris, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, Trevor Booker and Justin Hamilton will start for Tuesday's preseason game against the Nets.

Lin was given the night off during Brooklyn's last preseason game on Saturday, but he'll be back in action tonight. Harris and Hamilton will be getting spot-starts tonight with Kenny Atkinson dishing out rest days to Brook Lopez and Randy Foye, but there's zero reason to believe that Harris or Hamilton will earn meaningful minutes once the regular-season is under way.

Jeremy Lin will be rested against the Knicks on Saturday.

Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said this has nothing to do with Lin returning to Madison Square Garden. Regardless, the Nets will hopefully get a good look at both Isaiah Whitehead and Yogi Ferrell in this one, though Greivis Vasquez will likely start.
Oct 8 - 11:46 AM

Jeremy Lin scored 21 points in just 17 minutes against the Pistons on Thursday, adding three rebounds, one assist, one steal and five 3-pointers.

Coach Kenny Atkinson loves Lin and called him the quarterback of the offense. The Nets really don't many reliable ball handlers besides Lin and the oft-injured Greivis Vasquez, so he should get all he can eat. His upside isn't the greatest due to somewhat low steals and some efficiency issues, but Lin can be counted on as a fantasy starter at almost any depth.
Oct 6 - 10:40 PM

Kenny Atkinson said he expects Jeremy Lin to be a leader for the Nets this upcoming season.

"[Lin] came off the bench in Charlotte last year and did a heckuva job. But this is a little different deal," said Atkinson. "Now, you are kind of the quarterback, the Eli Manning... I think he can be a darn good defender with his athleticism, his competitiveness. I think he feels a little slighted that he is not considered a better defender." Lin is poised for a career-year as Brooklyn's unquestioned starting point guard, so he should come off the board towards the middle rounds on draft day.

Jeremy Lin's "number [one] priority" was working on his jump shot this summer.

"Working on all types of jump shots: catch-and-shoot 3's, off-the-dribble 3's, mid-range jumpers, iso jumpers," Lin wrote on his website. "I've always had a knack for attacking the rim, finishing or getting to the free throw line, but if I am able to really consistently hit shots from the outside, it would take my game to a whole new level. I've changed my form, brought my release lower and made the motion smoother in hopes of making it more consistent, creating a quicker release and using less energy so on nights when I'm tired I can still shoot it well. I've also been working on my floaters and change of pace game because as I get older, I will rely less and less on my athleticism." Lin is going to have all of the opportunity he can handle as the unquestioned starting PG in Brooklyn, so don't overlook him as a fine mid-round option on fantasy draft day.
Aug 20 - 5:10 PM

Jeremy Lin is hopeful he can have a career-year as the Nets' starting point guard.

"I'm 27. I’m going into the next three years [thinking they] should be the best years from an athletic prime standpoint," said Lin. "If you look at when NBA players peak, a lot of times it’s 27-30." Lin will be entering his athletic prime and returning to the coach (Kenny Atkinson) that helped make him a star during his Lin-sanity days with the Knicks. Atkinson has already said Lin will be Brooklyn's starting point guard, which should allow him enough minutes to put up mid-round value.
Jul 24 - 2:36 PM

Nets' head coach Kenny Atkinson said during Jeremy Lin's introductory press conference that he's looking for Lin to take on a leadership role, and that he will be the team's "full-time point guard."

Lin is coming into his prime, and has already discussed his willingness to embrace a leadership role for this young Brooklyn team. The last time Lin was a full-time starter was during the 2012-13 season in which he averaged 32.2 minutes a night to go with 13.4 points, 6.1 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.1 triples per game on 44.1 percent shooting, which was good enough for mid-round value in standard leagues. Atkinson was also one of the primary coaches who helped develop Lin during his Lin-sanity run with the Knicks back in 2012, so he could be in for a career-year.
Jul 20 - 1:20 PM

Jeremy Lin said that he's ready to embrace his starting role with the Nets.

"I’m the playmaker, I’m the point guard," Lin said. "I’ve got to lead and be the extension of the coach. I’m not shying away from that role at all." He signed a three-year, $36 million deal and has a strong relationship with head coach Kenny Atkinson dating back to his days with the Knicks. Lin was the primary backup behind Kemba Walker in Charlotte last season, but he also drew 13 starts and posted averages of 17.5 points, 4.8 assists, 4.0 boards and 1.8 treys on 46.1 percent shooting.
Jul 10 - 10:48 AM

Jeremy Lin has agreed to a three-year, $36 million deal with the Brooklyn Nets.

Linsanity is back in New York. Lin worked with Nets coach Kenny Atkinson during his time with the Knicks, so this is a great fit for the 27-year-old. Lin should be the starting PG on opening night and his fantasy value will get a significant boost, while Isaiah Whitehead and Caris LeVert lose a bit of value with this news. Lin's deal includes a player option for the third year.
Jul 1 - 10:10 AM

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, Jeremy Lin is nearing an agreement on a multi-year deal with the Brooklyn Nets

The Nets may finally have a chance to use their cap space. We know that Lin wants a starting role and Brooklyn can offer him a truckload of cash, so this move would make sense. We'll have an update shortly.
Jul 1 - 10:04 AM

The Nets are interested in making a run at free agent Jeremy Lin, according to Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer.

The Hornets are hopeful that they'll be able to re-sign Lin, but Bonnell reports the Nets may "hard-sell" the 27-year-old. Lin was a solid bench option for the Hornets last season, but would see a boost in fantasy value if he lands on a Nets squad that appears ready to part ways with Jarrett Jack.
