Toronto Raptors to sign veteran point guard Jeremy Lin

Report: Lin to join Raptors after Hawks' buyout

Guard Jeremy Lin and the Atlanta Hawks are finalizing a buyout of his contract, and he then expects to sign with the Toronto Raptors, according to an ESPN report. Lin has never advanced beyond the first round of the playoffs.

Agents Jim Tanner and Roger Montgomery were expected to complete the buyout with the Hawks as soon as Monday, they said, and Lin could sign with the Raptors as soon as midweek. The video of his memorably buzzer-beater in Toronto made the social media rounds.

Raptors center Marc Gasol scored 16 points, 11 in the fourth quarter, in his home debut after being acquired in last Thursday's trade with Memphis.

The Division 2 open beta has been casually confirmed
Similarly, we can only make an educated guess, based on past events, as to what will be included in the forthcoming open beta. However, the real highlight had to be The Division 2's endgame with three all-new specializations and a high-level mission.


With Kyle Lowry dealing with a lingering back issue, and Fred VanVleet (left thumb soreness) now a little banged up himself, Lin may find a solid immediate role off the bench for the Raptors.

While Raptors coach Nick Nurse couldn't talk about the deal, Nets coach Kenny Anderson, who coached Lin in Brooklyn, did.

The second-year backup guard is averaging 10.5 points and 4.6 assists while shooting 36.6 percent from 3-point distance in 51 appearances with the Raptors this season.

Mississippi State beats Tennessee, makes big statement
The rigors of playing teams that try to take her away from rebounds and scoring in the paint often lead to some hard falls. Tennessee has played national powers Notre Dame and Stanford and Warlick said State compares favorably with either one.


But Crabbe later hit back-to-back 3-pointers to tie the game with 1:34 remaining at 120.

The plan to enter into an agreement with Lin comes one day after the Raptors finalized the conversion of two-way player Chris Boucher's contract to an National Basketball Association standard contract.
