Before joining the Ducks, he played for numerous teams in the NBA. His last experience in the G-League was in 2012 with the Erie Bayhawks.

The Taiwanese-American player won an NBA championship with the Toronto Raptors during the 2018-19 season.

Besides playing for the Raptors, he’s also played for the Atlanta Hawks, Brooklyn Nets, Charlotte Hornets, Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets, the New York Knicks, and the Golden State Warriors. He began his career with the Warriors during the 2010-11 season.

For those that do not know, an Exhibit 10 contract is a one-year deal with a minimum salary. These types of contracts convert into two-way contracts.

So if a player does not make the NBA roster, he’ll be able to join the G-League team.

In Lin’s last season in the NBA with the Hawks and the Raptors, he averaged 9.6 points per game in 74 games, including four starts. He also had 2.4 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 0.6 steals, and 0.2 blocks with the two teams in 19.4 minutes per game.

He has appeared in 480 games, including 221 starts, in his NBA career. Only once in his entire career has he started all 82 games.

Lin has averaged 11.6 points per game. He also has 2.8 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 1.1 steals, and 0.4 blocks in 25.5 minutes per game.
