Welcome back to New York, Jeremy Lin. We missed you in the Big Apple.
Lin announced the move Friday morning on his Twitter account:

“The journey continues…thankful for the next chapter!!”

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.
