Lin calls free agency process 'tough'

Jeremy Lin celebrates the Toronto Raptors' win over the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals

Jeremy Lin celebrates the Toronto Raptors' win over the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals

An undrafted point guard out of Harvard in 2010, Lin was waived by the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets before making it big with the New York Knicks during February 2012, when he seemingly came from out of nowhere to lead a team that had lost 11 of its previous 13 games to seven straight wins.

More than one billion dollars in contracts were agreed to in the first 24 hours of the NBA's new league year, but free agency isn't a feeding frenzy for all players.

However, Lin struggled in 23 regular season games with Toronto, dipping to 7.0 points and 2.2 assists per game while shooting only 37.4 percent from the field. He was a non-factor during the Raptors' championship run, logging just 27 total playoff minutes. "In English, there's a saying and it says, 'Once you hit rock bottom the only way is up, '" Lin says in English before a translator mirrors his message in the native language.

Though his season ended with a title, making him the first Asian-American player in league history to lift the Larry O'Brien trophy, Lin remains unsigned almost a month after free agency began.

Stephenson signs one-year contract with Capitals
Though Stephenson didn't go to arbitration, Christian Djoos did, getting awarded more money than the Caps can afford. With the signing, the Capitals now have all their roster spots filled and all potential free agents under contract.

"Rock bottom seems to be getting more and more rock bottom for me". "'Cause I feel like, in some ways, the National Basketball Association has kind of given up on me".

The nine-year veteran could land with a team in need of a reserve guard this upcoming season; if not, he has also expressed that he would consider playing in Taiwan and per Sportando's Emiliano Carchia, is said to be a top target of Euroleague's CSKA Moscow.

"After the season I had to get ready for this Asia trip and it was the last thing I wanted to do", Lin said. After a career resurgence in the 2015-16 season with the Charlotte Hornets, Lin signed a multiyear deal to join the Brooklyn Nets as a free agent.
