Sean Marks said that Jeremy Lin is still the leader of the Nets in post draft interviews on Friday.
They’re going to need the leadership that Lin provides and the good news for Lin in the D’Angelo Russell acquisition is that this won’t pressure Kenny Atkinson to go over the fateful 27 mpg mark with him. It was almost a guarantee that Lin would break down if he did so, not really being able to eclipse that numbers in recent seasons. As we know, he went over last year and promptly ruined his season with hamstring injuries.
