Nets guard Jeremy Lin exercises $12.5M option for 2018-19

Brooklyn Nets guard Jeremy Lin has exercised his $12.5M player option for the 2018-19 season, per Zach Lowe of ESPN. According to ESPN's Zach Lowe, Lin has made a decision to opt into the final season of his contract.

Lin, who made his National Basketball Association breakthrough as a member of the New York Knicks during the 2011-12 season, is averaging 12.0 points, 4.5 assists and 2.9 rebounds per game for his career.

But alas, with Williams signing for less money and the slate of supporting players getting mega deals as they have the past couple of seasons now on the horizon behind us, Lin likely wanted to keep as much money in his pocket as he could. Brooklyn wasn't expected to be good this season, but it was supposed to at least be exciting and fun thanks to Lin. That season he averaged 14.5 points, 5.1 assists and 3.8 rebounds in 24.5 minutes of action per game. The veteran guard will be back in a crowded Nets' backcourt along with Spencer Dinwiddie and D'Angelo Russell but could still play a significant role as the starting point guard next year or first reserve. He's yet to play a full season for him, which is disappointing.
