The salary that the Nets are offering Johnson has raised quite a lot of eyebrows, but they feel that the shooting guard with an average of 8.7 points and with 38% shots from the three-point area under his belt, would be an asset to the team. The Nets might have planned a potential backcourt with Jeremy Lin and Tyler Johnson.
Jeremy Lin is happy to head to New York City and play for the Nets, but he didn’t forget to thank his Charlotte Hornets fans who stood by him in some of the most difficult times in his career. Jeremy Lin had used the social media to announce his term with the Nets and then took to Reddit to provide an extended statement to the fans.
The time spent by Lin in Charlotte Hornets might be of only a year, but it was a special one since it was the first time that the Hornets had won their playoff since the age of 14. He cordially thanked the fans and added that the year in Hornets was one of his most enjoyable seasons in NBA, and he would cherish being a part of the team and the city that enjoyed its first win in the playoffs after years.
The Hornets could make some improvement in their games thanks to the presence of Jeremy Lin and several Nets fans are hopeful that Lin will be able to help them secure more wins this time round.
