Jeremy Lin has managed to stay in the NBA, but he has become a journeyman. Currently with the Atlanta Hawks, the 30-year-old could find himself moving once more but hopefully to a contending team.

As mentioned in a previous post, Lin was suggested as a possible fit with the Utah Jazz. Now, another team has been suggested for the player: the Detroit Pistons.

Lin’s career has been hampered by injuries, one reason why he has failed to finish an entire season. With the Hawks, he has somehow recalled his old fiery form. Looking ahead, however, critics believe that the American-Asian is best suited to contending teams.

The Bleacher Report enumerated several scenarios for Linsanity. However, the report predicted that it would not be a straight-up trade but a three-team trade instead. In that scenario, Detroit would get Lin and Wayne Ellington from the Miami Heat, while the Hawks would get Jon Leuer, Ish Smith and the Pistons 2019 first-rounder. The Heat would end up with Glenn Robinson III.

The potential entry of Lin and Ellington is seen by most as sensible since the Pistons need help improving their outside shooting. Both players have good percentages from the three-point area, with Lin owning a 37.8 clip. Ellington is knocking down treys at 36.5 percent.

As of this writing, the Pistons have a 17-20 win-loss record over at the Eastern Conference. The Charlotte Hornets are within striking distance at 19-20 and the Orlando Magic at 17-22. It remains to be seen if this suggested trade can address that team’s woes after initially starting the season on a high note.

Lin could be a big addition depending on how head coach Dwane Casey uses him. He is seen as a someone who can draw fouls and play even without the ball in his hands. But similar to his past campaigns, one concern is his durability.

On the other end, Ellington may be due for a change of scenery. He has been taken out of the rotation of head coach Erik Spoelstra and it is anyone’s guess if he can earn back his spot. According to the Sun-Sentinel, the 31-year-old has not requested for trade as of this writing, but the Heat could push through with one even without his consent.

Seeing that the Hawks are in rebuild mode, Leuer could fit into the team’s plans. The same holds true for the draft pick, while Smith’s case remains to be seen. These are just trade suggestions for the team’s concerned as potential scenarios for the February NBA trade deadline continues to heat up.
