Grunwald: ‘We do want to keep’ Lin
Knicks general manager Glen Grunwald said he expects Jeremy Lin to be with the team next season.
Lin will become a restricted free agent July 1. There’s been some speculation that teams could backload an offer sheet for Lin, who can’t make more than roughly $5.5 million for the 2012-13 season. The Knicks can match all offers for the point guard, and Grunwald doesn’t foresee a scenario in which they won’t.
“Not at this time,” he said. “We can keep him if we want him, and we do want to keep him. I believe that Jeremy had a great experience here and I believe he wants to come back. So that’s where that is.”
