More than three years after its last date NBA Jeremy Lynn – Bay Area Kid & Former Game Golden State Warriors The guard who sparked “Linsanity” with New York Knicks Back in 2012 – continues to do his work on hardwood. And as of this week, he officially has a new place to trade.

Lin is no stranger to the CBA, spending last season – as well as the 2019-20 season – with the Beijing Shougang Ducks.
Lin had a hard time last season
With his Knicks peak long behind him and injuries affecting his game, Lynn struggled to hold onto a place in the League during his final seasons in the United States. During the 2020-21 season, he made one last attempt to return to the league by joining the J-League Warriors in Santa Cruz.
He cleared himself well with Sea Dubs as well, but in the end he didn’t get a shot from the NBA. Over nine games with the team, Lynn averaged 19.8 points, 6.4 assists and 3.2 rebounds per game while scoring 50.5% of his shots overall and 42.6% of his hat-tricks.
However, he faced an incredible ordeal on his return to China last season. As reported by the South China Morning Post (archived), Lyn contracted COVID-19 and his condition was so bad that he found himself in the hospital as a result. Furthermore, he lost nearly 20 lbs while in isolation.
Upon returning to hardwood, Lynn struggled with the effects of COVID-19 and restoring his former shape proved a long process. As a result, he averaged just 13.7 points and 4.4 assists per outing with the Ducks last season, a notable step back from his previous stint with the club.
He said at the time, “I was so tired – like I couldn’t breathe – so to me, going this route might seem more difficult than the others.”
