Jeremy Lin finalizing buyout with Hawks, to sign with Raptors

Fred Van Vleet Injury Update

Fred Van Vleet Injury Update

Linsanity is coming to Canada. "Hyped to join the Raptors!".

Lin is earning $12.5 million in his first season with the Hawks. An expiring contract brought a fair amount of rumored interest as last week's trade deadline approached, and the Hawks' initially reported stance on not doing a buyout seemingly shifted with a potential push from Lin's representation.

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.

Iran Marks 40th Anniversary of Revolution
On February 11, 1979, Iran's army declared its neutrality, paving the way for the fall of US-backed Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. In January, Mr Rouhani said Iran was facing its worst economic crisis since the Shah was toppled.

"Heck of an addition for the Raptors", Anderson said before the Nets tipped off against Toronto on Monday. He fits the style of play I think Nick wants to play.

Toronto will be his eighth employer in nine seasons in the league. He's averaged almost 20 minutes per game, scoring 10.7 points, dishing 3.5 assists and hauling down 2.3 rebounds per contest.

Toronto is now well positioned to win the Eastern Conference - one game behind Milwaukee. Although both Wright and Lin have been 33.3 percent three-point shooters, Lin had a major advantage in two-point field goal percentage (.535 to.485) and assist rate (27.1 percent to 16.9 percent). He has been part of three previous playoff runs, in 2013 and 2014 with Houston and in 2016 with Charlotte.
