Jeremy Lin Heading to Hornets

While everybody was focusing on DeAndre Jordan taking a sledgehammer to the Dallas Mavericks’ future on Wednesday night, Jeremy Lin snuck in an announcement that he was heading to the Charlotte Hornets:

Soon after Lin’s social media announcement, the value of the deal came out, and it was surprisingly low:

The deal is for the bi-annual exception, and Lin will be the primary backup guard off the bench behind Kemba Walker. Lin can also play alongside Walker at times. The 26-year-old had a somewhat tumultuous year for the Los Angeles Lakers, although he still put up decent averages of 11.2 points and 4.6 assists while shooting a career-high 36.9 percent from three-point range.

In a somewhat sick twist, the Mavericks had been gunning for Lin as an upgrade to their point-guard situation to go along with their core that featured Jordan. Now they get neither. Real rough day for Dallas.
