New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin was pleased to hear that Tim Tebow was coming to the Big Apple.
“Awesome,” Lin told ESPN New York upon hearing that the quarterback was traded to the New York Jets.
“I’m just excited for him and to see what he does and see what happens next year. … I’m excited he’s going to be in New York.”
The two’s stories are similar in the sense that they’ve both garnered worldwide attention while causing a media stir.
For the second time during the day, the Jets agreed to send a fourth- and sixth-round selection in this year’s draft to Denver in exchange for Tebow and a seventh-round pick.
The Jets had announced the trade on the team’s official website earlier Wednesday, only to see the deal hit a snag due to a contract clause that required any team acquiring Tebow to compensate the Broncos $5 million.
