Jeremy Lin headed to Raptors after buyout from Hawks

Report: Lin to join Raptors after Hawks' buyout

Report: Jeremy Lin finalizing a buyout with Atlanta Hawks, to sign with Toronto Raptors

Lin's salary - $13.8 million for the 2018-19 season - makes it impossible for a team to claim him off waivers.

Lin gives the Raptors a much-needed point guard after the team traded away Delon Wright in last week's blockbuster deal that brought Marc Gasol to Toronto.

In Toronto, he is expected to add depth behind Kyle Lowry and Fred VanVleet as the Raptors pursue the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference, now a game behind Milwaukee. Before the game, the Raptors said VanVleet will miss at least three weeks because of a ligament inury in his left thumb.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the veteran point guard is finalizing a buyout with the Atlanta Hawks and will sign with Toronto following the buyout according to his agents Jim Tanner and Roger Montgomery. Fans might also remember back in 2012 when Lin hit a game-winner against Toronto. Brooklyn had 33 assists on 46 made field goals.

In the third quarter, Russell attacked the rim for 14 points in the period, locking up his double-double before even getting to the fourth quarter.
