Is Lin’s New York Future In Jeopardy?

 Linsanity. One word and people from all over the globe think of one man…Jeremy Lin. For about three weeks in late winter, New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin was all the rage in the sports world. He’s set to become a restricted free agent soon, and many believe he’ll return to the Big Apple. The Knicks interest in another free agent point guard could put Lin’s future in New York in doubt.

Rumor has it, the Knicks might make a push for veteran superstar Steve Nash. Despite Knicks coach Mike Woodson‘s claims that New York will “absolutely” bring back Linsanity, Lin isn’t so sure. The New York Daily news has more.

“Nothing is set in stone. That’s what I’ve learned,” Lin said Thursday. “We talked about (my free agency). I love the Knicks and the organization. But at the same time, it’s a business. Me, personally, I think it would be great if I come back. But crazy things happen and I don’t really know what’s going to happen.”

About an hour earlier, coach Mike Woodson all but guaranteed Lin would return next season. However, Woodson stopped short of handing over to the starting job to a 23-year-old coming off knee surgery.

Being a restricted free agent certainly helps the Knicks chances of keeping Jeremy, but with  $53.2 million committed to the threesome of Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler and Amare Stoudemire, it’ll be hard to match a hefty offer if Lin receives one on the open market.
