Jeremy Lin makes career decision after failed NBA return

A few years ago, Jeremy Lin nearly made a much-anticipated return to the league. The former NBA champion joined the Golden State Warriors’ NBA G League affiliate, the Santa Cruz Warriors, in 2021 in hopes of being called up to the big leagues. Unfortunately for him, that never materialized and he has now made a major career decision.

According to a basketball journalist Zhang DuoLin has now agreed to return to the Chinese Basketball Association for a third consecutive season:

Official: Jeremy Lin will continue his CBA career in the Guangzhou Loonglions.

Lin will join the Guangzhou Loonglions, but his contract details have not been revealed. The move follows a two-year stint with the CBA’s Beijing Ducks.

Now at 34, Jeremy Lin’s recent move seems like the final straw when it comes to his dream of returning to the NBA. Father Time catches up with the former New York Knicks sensation (could anyone forget Linsanity?), and it looks like we’ve already seen Lin play in his last NBA game.

In nine years in the league, Lin was a journeyman who played for no less than eight different teams. There’s no doubt, however, that his most memorable stint came during the 2011-12 season with the Knicks when he stormed the league as a previously unknown sophomore combo guard.

Jeremy Lin holds career averages of 11.6 points2.8 rebounds and 5.2 assists in 480 games played throughout his colorful NBA tenure.
