The long wait for Jeremy Lin may finally be over. However, his next stint may not be in the NBA but overseas. He recently became the first America-Asian to win an NBA title with the Toronto Raptors, but the 30-year-old has yet to find a new home in the pro ranks.

Regardless, this does not mean that Lin will be left out in the cold. There were suggestions that the 30-year-old could be headed back to the Chinese Basketball Association and there was that possibility of seeing him return to the Charlotte Hornets in what some could call unfinished business. To recall, this was his stop after a forgettable season with the Los Angeles Lakers and he seems to fit in nicely with the system of new head coach James Borrego. When Lin played for the Hornets, it was Steve Clifford calling the shots. A lot of this was covered in detail in a previous post.

With no takers as of this writing, Sportando gathered from sources that CSKA Moscow is targeting Lin. CSKA Moscow is the Euroleague and VTB League reigning champions and they are reportedly currently in need of a guard to fill an open slot. Should Lin pass on it, the ballclub may divert its attention to another NBA free agent in Ron Baker.

For now, it appears Lin may consider that although his priority is likely to see if there is still an NBA team out there willing to take him in. Money matters will also come into play. In the report from Sportando, it was not mentioned how much CSKA Moscow is willing to offer the undrafted cager of the 2010 NBA Draft. Seeing how Lin is likely to be handed a minimum contract at the least, he could be earning more than that. Also, there is the angle on whether the Harvard graduate would be willing to play overseas and not the NBA or even the CBA.

Little has been known on Lin since the Raptors defeated the Golden State Warriors in the 2018-19 NBA Finals. He has become a journeyman in the NBA, having stints with the Golden State Warriors, New York Knicks, Houston Rockets, Lakers, Hornets, Brooklyn Nets and the Atlanta Hawks before getting traded to Toronto. He as at his best with the Knicks, Hornet, and Hawks, so it will be interesting which other teams would take him in - likely as a reserve guard.
