I'm not going to gain many supporters with this slide but, in my opinion, it's the truth.
New York Knicks free agent Jeremy Lin will be able to entertain offers from around the league this summer. I strongly advise club management to not do so, however.
Lin has played only a handful of games during his career in the NBA. During those handful of games was an even smaller handful of games where he played well, creating what everyone knows as "Linsanity."
Lin showing he could play for a couple of games isn't enough to warrant a huge attraction in the free-agency market. He's a seventh or eighth man at best and he's coming off of an injury, an injury that should speak volumes about his NBA durability. If a player is getting injured after starting for only 25 games, I'd be worried about his continued success in the league.
On top of his limited play that resulted in a knee injury, Lin brings with him a Tim Tebow-like media hype. This cult media following that Lin carries around could prove to be very distracting to a team, especially if the team already has a few high-profile players.
Unless the team that signs him is incredibly hard-pressed for a point guard, teams should wait it out and see if "Linsanity" will return to the NBA or if it's officially died out. If Lin can prove that he can play well in every game, then my opinion of him will change. Until then, however, I will highly advise NBA franchises to leave Jeremy Lin along.
