Indiana Pacers May Express Interest on Jeremy Lin in Lieu of CJ Watson

It was also previously reported that Jeremy Lin might end up playing for the Denver Nuggets especially when word got around that the Mile High basketball franchise is considering taking on Mike D’Antoni as its new head coach to replace the fired Brian Shaw.

Mike D’Antoni is the coach of Jeremy Lin when he played for the New York Knicks back in 2011-12 where he showcased his wares for 17 straight games that were dubbed as his Linsanity days. He has not been able to draw from himself the same performance again after the New York Knicks let go of him at the end of the season and he was signed by Houston Rockets for a three-year contract.

It would have been a reunion of sort between D’Antoni and Lin in Denver but with the decision of the Nuggets to take in Michael Malone as new head coach early this week instead, it is not clear if the team will still pursue Jeremy Lin in the free agency market this coming summer.

  1. Larry Bird one of the Boston Celtic’s greatest player certainly will have some affinity to Jeremi Lin who is great player from Boston Harvard.

  2. Larry Bird will be a great teacher for Jeremy Lin to learn from ! If I were Jeremy, I would rather take a big pay-cut in order to get an opportunity to learn from Larry Bird !
