The New York Knicks are desperate for help at point guard.
After all, starting point guard Raymond Felton was recently deemed the worst point guard in the NBA.
The Knicks are chasing the big fish, Rajon Rondo of the Boston Celtics and Kyle Lowry of the Toronto Raptors, but will likely have to settle for a lesser player that a team is looking to get rid of.
That could lead to a reunion between the Knicks and former sensation Jeremy Lin.
The Rockets are actively shopping Lin and according to ESPN’s Chad Ford, who joined Grantland’s Bill Simmons and Zach Lowe on the B.S. Report Tuesday, reports Lin is a target of the Knicks.
Lin exploded during the 2011-12 season, helping turn the Knicks’ season around and get them into the playoffs after firing head coach Mike D’Antoni. Lin averaged 14.6 points, 6.2 assists and 3.1 rebounds per game. In the offseason, he became a restricted free agent and signed an offer sheet with the Rockets. The Knicks chose not match the offer.
This season, Lin is averaging 13.3 points, 4.5 assists and 2.6 rebounds per game.
