Though most people think Jeremy Lin’s return to the Knicks is a no-brainer, it’s not that simple. Despite 5 other NBA teams’ interest in the young point guard, Lin’s agent, Roger Montgomery, expressed doubt in a recent interview with the New York Post.
“I don’t expect that. We’re not anticipating that’s going to happen. We don’t have assurances of anything. 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,” said Montgomery on Lin’s return.
Mike Woodson did proclaim that Jeremy Lin would “absolutely” be back following their elimination by the Heat, however, on that same day, Lin noted, “There’s always going to be uncertainty until the final contract is signed, so definitely nothing is set in stone. Nothing’s set in stone until it’s really written.”
