NBA Rumor: Jeremy Lin May Not Return to New York Knicks

It seemed like a given that Jeremy Lin would return to the New York Knicks. Yesterday.

Today, however, according to Lin's agent Roger Montgomery, that may not be as much of a done deal as we originally figured it would be.

"I don't expect that. We're not anticipating that's going to happen. We don't have assurances of anything," Montgomery told the New York Post (via ESPN). "I know history shows most restricted free agents go back to their team, but I'm not going to assume anything. We're waiting to see what happens."

Knicks coach Mike Woodson said this past week that Lin will "absolutely" return. Lin had his breakout season in 2012, averaging about 15 points and six assists per game.

"There's always going to be uncertainty until the final contract is signed, so definitely nothing is set in stone," Lin said. "Nothing's set in stone until it's really written."

Will Lin return?
