Golden State Warriors beat writer Marcus Thompson tweeted this morning that rookie Jeremy Lin will be recalled from the D-League Reno Big Horns tomorrow. Lin was sent down to the Big Horns last week and has made a very solid impression in a short amount of time. Since debuting with Reno on December 28, Lin has appeared in four games, starting the last two, pouring in 18.0 points per game. While he has not led the team in scoring in any one game, he currently has the highest points per game on the roster. He's fourth on the team in field goal percentage, but is also leading the team in turnovers with 3.5 turnovers per game.â†µ
The Warriors can recall a player as many times as they want from the D-League but they can only officially assign a player to the D-League three times in one season. This was Lin's first assignment to Reno. The Warriors split Reno with the Sacramento Kings and it includes a fairly impressive roster for former college stars, including Aaron Mile, Nick Fazekas, Patrick Ewing, Jr, and DJ Strawberry (son of Darryl).
