As expected, money was not the top priority for Jeremy, staring job as the point guard and steady playing time was. By not asking for max deals, Jeremy helps out the team by freeing up additional cap room for other talents. He can hopefully avoid the backlash that accompany him from the Houston Rockets deal.
Jeremy Lin averaged 11.7 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.0 assists over 26.3 minutes per game in his only season with the Hornets. But people tend to forget Jeremy is not the point guard, he’s in the shooting guard position when sharing the floor with Kemba Walker.
When Lin does start, his average shoot up to 14.2 points, 3.1 rebounds and 5.7 assists in 32.2 minutes per game.
