Raps to sign veteran PG Lin

Jeremy Lin getting bought out, plans to sign with Raptors

Jeremy Lin expected to bolster Raptors' playoff run following buyout with Hawks

The Palo Alto, California native is averaging 10.7 points, 3.5 assists, and 2.3 rebounds in 51 games for the Hawks this season.

Linsanity is coming to Canada.

Wojnarowski reports that the buyout could be completed as soon as Monday, allowing the Raptors to sign him sometime this week.

Atlanta was Lin's seventh team in his career.

Toronto Raptors fans know just how lethal Jeremy Lin can be.

The president mentioned El Paso in his State of the Union address last week as an example to support his demand for a wall. The Make America Great Again rally will take place in El Paso, Texas on Monday at the County Coliseum.

Lin's arrival in Toronto takes on greater importance with Raptors guard Fred VanVleet expected to miss at least three weeks with a partially torn ligament in his left thumb.

National Basketball Association point guard Jeremy Lin is completing a contract buyout agreement with the Atlanta Hawks that will allow him to sign with the Toronto Raptors.

With Delon Wright being shipped out to Memphis as part of the Marc Gasol trade, rookie Jordan Loyd could slide into the back-up point guard role until Lin can join the team.

VanVleet is believed to have suffered the injury in the second quarter of Saturday's victory over the New York Knicks. Adding Lin doesn't necessarily qualify as an attack of the buyout market, but there haven't been many getting done to this point.

In Toronto, he is expected to add depth behind Kyle Lowry and Fred VanVleet as the Raptors pursue the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference, now a game behind Milwaukee.
