  • Report: Lin to join Raptors after Hawks' buyout

Now a grizzled and well-traveled veteran at 30 years old, Lin is set to be headed to the Toronto Raptors once the Atlanta Hawks officially buy him out.

Agents Jim Tanner and Roger Montgomery told ESPN on Monday that Lin could be with the Raptors by the middle of the week.

It appears as if Linsanity is making its way north of the border as the Toronto Raptors are expected to land Jeremy Lin once he hits the open market. The video of his memorably buzzer-beater in Toronto made the social media rounds. And the team announced Monday that backup guard Fred VanVleet will be sidelined for three weeks with a ligament injury in his thumb. Gasol, who spent his first 10 1/2 seasons of his National Basketball Association career with the Memphis Grizzlies before being traded to Toronto last week, learned that lesson before the Raptors played the Nets.

While Raptors coach Nick Nurse couldn't talk about the deal, Nets coach Kenny Anderson, who coached Lin in Brooklyn, did. Much better defender than people think.

"Very smart. And versatile".

Atlanta Hawks guard Jeremy Lin (7) dribbles the ball as Washington Wizards forward Jeff Green (32) defends in the second quarter at Capital One Arena.

With the Hawks, Lin averaged 10.7 points, 3.5 assists and 2.3 rebounds in 19.7 minutes per game. Can he be a valuable player for the Raptors down the stretch? He's been part of three previous playoff runs, in 2013 and 2014 with Houston and in 2016 with Charlotte.
