Nothing But Nets: Linsanity Returns to New York
Point guard Jeremy Lin has signed a deal with the Brooklyn Nets, reportedly for 3 years, $36 million
. The landing place at first seems head-scratching, especially when you look at how barren the Nets are across the board, but this means that Lin has an opportunity to put his full abilities on display. The Hornets weren't a bad team, and they blew a series lead against the Heat in the first round of the playoffs, but the Nets don't seem like they're ready to compete any time soon. However, it's possible that more moves may be coming to Brooklyn, which would help make this deal make more sense. In a year where the salary cap booms, Brooklyn may have the ammo to push for many more signings to come.
