It’s all but official.
Jeremy Lin announced via Twitter that he’s returning to New York where Linsanity all began.
Lin won’t be returning to the New York Knicks. He’ll be signing a three year deal with the Brooklyn Nets.
The deal is reportedly worth three years, $36 million.
That’s a huge boost over what he made with the Charlotte Hornets, which was estimated to be two year, $4 million. Lin opted out of his last year for free agency which officially got underway yesterday.

There’s been no official announcement from the Nets.
It’ll be great to see Lin back in the spotlight of New York. While not as big as the one on the Knicks, expect the sale of Lin jerseys to take off as media coverage of him will indeed intensify.
