Jeremy Lin finalizing buyout with Hawks, to sign with Raptors

The Toronto Raptors are set to sign Jeremy Lin: report

In 51 games this season (22 starts), VanVleet is averaging 10.5 points, 4.6 assists and 2.7 rebounds in 26.8 minutes per game.

The sugar high of "Linsanity" is long gone, and not coming to Canada in full.

The Toronto Raptors shored up their roster ahead of a playoff run by acquiring three-time All-Star center Marc Gasol earlier in the week, but they're not done improving yet.

It's been just over seven years since "Linsanity" descended on the New York Knicks, via a little-known point guard named Jeremy Lin.

Lin was effective as a backup and mentor to Hawks' first-round pick Trae Young.

He has faced growing criticism for failing to sign more deals, and for appearing to criss-cross the globe to little effect. The EU has 40 agreements, covering trade with 71 different countries, that would need to be rolled over.

Lin, 30, will need to clear waivers first, something that should be a foregone conclusion given he's set to make $12.5 million this season.

Toronto Raptors guard Fred VanVleet is sidelined with a partial ligament injury to his left thumb, the team announced Monday.

Toronto will become Lin's eighth National Basketball Association franchise, after stints with Golden State, New York, Houston, the Los Angeles Lakers, Charlotte, Brooklyn and this season Atlanta.

Lin began his career with the Golden State Warriors in 2010-11.
