Lin's agent: No slam dunk Jeremy returns
By Ian Begley
Many see it as a foregone conclusion that Jeremy Lin will return to the New York Knicks. But not Roger Montgomery, Lin's agent.
"I don't expect that. We're not anticipating that's going to happen. We don't have assurances of anything," Montgomery said in an interview with the New York Post. "I know history shows most restricted free agents go back to their team, but I'm not going to assume anything. We're waiting to see what happens."
Knicks coach Mike Woodson said earlier this month that Lin will "absolutely" be back with the Knicks next season. But Lin, speaking the day after the Knicks' season-ending loss to Miami, said "nothing is set in stone" regarding his free agency.
"There's always going to be uncertainty until the final contract is signed, so definitely nothing is set in stone," Lin said. "Nothing's set in stone until it's really written."
What do you think? Is Jeremy Lin a lock to return to New York? Do you see him ending up somewhere else next year?
