JEREMY LIN JOINS TEAM IGNITE FOR PRACTICE
NBA veteran Jeremy Lin, who last played in the Chinese Basketball Association, has joined Team Ignite of the G League in practice though he is not an official member of the roster.
The coach of Team Ignite, Brian Shaw,
confirmed that Lin played briefly for the squad in their scrimmage against a squad of G League veterans on Tuesday afternoon in Walnut Creek, California (Wednesday in Manila).
Shaw said, “Yes, Jeremy actually just joined us, so he hasn’t had a chance to practice with the team yet. Today was his first day, he cleared protocol, he’s been working out.”
The former New York Knick went scoreless, not taking a single field goal in his brief stint on the floor.
Shaw gave Lin around three minutes of playing time in what turned out to be a 113-107 victory for the G League veterans.
