Lin’s return to Knicks not ‘set in stone’

Jeremy Lin’s return to the New York Knicks appears fairly certain, but he’ll be a restricted free agent this summer and his agent cautioned that there are no guarantees that he wouldn’t be tempted by an offer from another team.
“I don’t expect that. We’re not anticipating that’s going to happen. We don’t have assurances of anything,” Lin’s agent, Roger Montgomery, told the New York Post. “I know history shows most restricted free agents go back to their team, but I’m not going to assume anything. We’re waiting to see what happens.”
The Knicks will be able to match any offer that the point guard receives.
Knicks coach Mike Woodson said after the season that Lin will be back, but Lin has said he’ll wait and see.
“There’s always going to be uncertainty until the final contract is signed, so definitely nothing is set in stone,” Lin said. “Nothing’s set in stone until it’s really written.”
Lin is recovering from surgery on April 2 to repair a meniscus tear in his left knee that kept him out of the Knicks’ first-round playoff series against the Miami Heat.
