Jeremy Lin was reported to have been “finalizing” a deal with the Golden State Warriors’ G League team in the 2020-2021 season, but the NBA free-agent guard dismissed rumors circulating on Twitter.
The 32-year-old led the Beijing Ducks to the Chinese Basketball Association’s semifinals and has been playing scrimmages with the G League’s new developmental team, according to ESPN.
Sources claimed that Lin is expected to join the Warriors’ affiliate, the G League Santa Cruz Warriors, but is awaiting a letter of clearance from the CBA, according to The Athletic‘s Shams Charania.

The former Harvard guard, however, refuted the reports on Twitter.
“Whoa…Everybody chill…this isnt what it looks like. No decisions have been made,” Lin wrote.
