Lin's Agent Says Returning Home Was Deciding Factor For Lin

From the Dallas Morning News:

Jeremy Lin’s agent, Roger Montgomery, just confirmed that his client has decided to sign with the Warriors. More details to come, but basically, Montgomery said the deciding factor is that Lin, a Palo Alto, Calif. native, “is getting to go home. That’s every player’s dream.”

The Mavs blog on the site provides a little more on the quote:

"That was one of the major factors, is that he gets a chance to go full-circle and come back home and play for his hometown team," Montomery said. "That's always a young man's dream, to get a chance to play professional sports for the team you grew up rooting for."

What makes this even sweeter is that Lin wanted to come back home. It’s always great to see athletes return to their roots.
