Jeremy Lin is once again heading back to Oakland as the Golden State Warriors recalled Lin from Reno in the National Basketball Association’s Development League. Lin is coming off his second D-League stint with the Bighorns. The team can send him down to the D-League up to three times during the season.
In his two stints with the Bighorns, Jeremy Lin has averaged 17.9 points, 5.6 rebounds, 4.7 assists, and 2.19 steals in 32.0 minutes per game. Among players that have appeared in more than one game he led Reno in scoring and was second in assists and steals per game. Of course, he also led the team in turnovers per game and shot 69.7% from the free throw line.
It remains to be seen how much playing time Lin will receive now that he’s back in Oakland. He was sent back down to Reno because he simply was not playing and the D-League has offered him a chance to at least get some playing time. Lin has appeared in 17 games with the Warriors this season and averaged 8.5 minutes, 1.9 points, .9 assists and 1.1 steals per game.
