NBA News: Jeremy Lin Perfect Fit As Hornets Reserve, Trade Rumors Baseless

The Charlotte Hornets are currently at the 7th spot in the Eastern Conference. They have a 9-6 win record after winning over Washington Wizards on Wednesday.

The Charlotte Hornets are currently at the 7th spot in the Eastern Conference. They have a 9-6 win record after winning over Washington Wizards on Wednesday. Jeremy Lin is a hot favorite at the Hornets coming off the bench.

Lin has been able to show tremendous consistency coming off the bench as a reserve point guard. His presence in the roster as a reliable 6th man has lifted Charlotte Hornets this season. Lin is coming in at crunch situation as substitute of the team’s starting point guard Kemba Walker. Both Walker and Lin provided stability at Hornets’ backcourt.

Lin is averaging a little less than 12 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists per game this season. The sensational star has stunned critics with his consistency, which eluded him since the Linsanity period of 2012.

His performance has made him the center of trade rumors, with gossips growing louder that the reigning champions Golden State Warriors are keen to pair him with MVP Stephen Curry. The Warriors have already registered a record-breaking 16-0 start this season and have a set side with consistent and fit performers. It’s unlikely that the defending champions would disturb Steve Kerr’s winning combination.

The Hornets, on the other hand, would be least interested to trade off Lin at this point. Lin has revealed that he’s enjoying his role at Charlotte. Moreover, Lin is a good player, but not he’s still not great enough that Warriors would bet on him when they’re at the zenith. So, such a trade is absurd from both team’s point of view.
