Free agent guard Lin taking game to China

Veteran point guard Jeremy Lin spent last season with the Hawks and Raptors.

Free agent guard Jeremy Lin has agreed to a contract with the Beijing Ducks, the team announced in a news release.

Lin, 31, had not generated much interest after finishing last season playing a small role with the world champion Toronto Raptors.

Lin expressed frustration with free agency, saying in July that he felt “the NBA has kind of given up on me.”

He averaged 7.0 points and 2.2 in 23 regular-season appearances with the Raptors, his lowest numbers since his rookie season. Lin began the season with the Atlanta Hawks, appearing in 51 games.

He has also played for the Brooklyn Nets, Charlotte Hornets, Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets, New York Knicks and Golden State Warriors.

Lin joins a large list of free agents who have decided to take their games to China this offseason. Others include Lance Stephenson, Jerian Grant, Donatas Motiejunas, Ian Clark and Jerryd Bayless.
