The 'Lin-Mania' is back in the NBA, and just over a year after being with the Beijing Ducks from the Chinese Basketball Association, Jeremy Lin has returned to the United States.
The Athletic's Shams Charania has reported Lin is signing an Exhibit 10 deal with the Golden State Warriors. The veteran is expected to join their G-League affiliate, Santa Cruz Warriors, and continue to work toward an NBA return.
This contract will leave him off the team’s 15-man roster for now.

While playing for the Ducks in China last season, Lin averaged 22.3 points and 5.6 assists per game, and was named a CBA All-Star and a finalist for Defensive Player of the Year.
During his most recent stint in the association, Lin reached the highest point of his career, winning the 2019 NBA Championship with the Toronto Raptors.
The 32 year-old from Torrance, California, started his career in the NBA with the Warriors after going undrafted in 2010. Since, then, he has played for the Knicks, Rockets, Lakers, Hornets, Nets, Hawks and Raptors.
