How Could The Knicks Pass On Re-Signing Jeremy Lin?
Jeremy Lin's run with the Knicks was the type of stuff you make movies out of.
The talented combo guard made the most of his opportunity with New York as he erupted on the scene in 2011. Lin went from the 12 man on the roster to star point guard of one of the most popular teams in the world.
Sadly, the Knicks opted not to re-sign and Lin in the off-season and let him walk away to Houston. When Lin became a free agent again, one would've thought the Knicks would give him a call, but that wasn't the case.
According to Lin, the Knicks actually showed no interest in bringing him back.
According to a report, Jeremy Lin's agent reached out to the New York Knicks over the summer to see whether the club was interested in signing his client, but the Knicks declined.
"There was no conversation other than them telling me they weren't interested," Lin said before the Knicks' preseason game against the Charlotte Hornets on Saturday, according to the New York Daily News.
"I've always been open to it, ever since I, you know, I don't want to say I necessarily left, ever since [they decided they didn't want to re-sign me]," Lin said. "But I've always been open to it. But I don't think they're as open to it."
I don't see how the Knicks could walk away from nabbing Lin at a solid market rate considering what he did for the team during his last run. The team played well and Lin grabbed the attention of many international fans in the NY area.
I think he was worth a shot, what about you?

@DannyMoses I wouldn't exactly say he's gone. He definitely isn't the same Jeremy Lin he was when he was with the Knicks. But I feel like he has a good chance to become a solid player with some playing time.
