Jeremy Lin has had his sights set on an NBA comeback since last playing for the evenutal Finals champion Toronto Raptors during the 2018-19 season. Lin last appeared during an NBA game in Game 3 of the 2019 Finals, meaning he's been away from the league for over a year and a half.

However, Lin is taking the next step toward a comback. He's heading to the G League to play for the Golden Warriors' affiliate in Santa Cruz.

Getting a chance to play in the G League is a start, and at least it's with a team that he's played for before.

Lin started his NBA career with the Warriors, playing in 29 games for them during the 2010-11 season. As an undrafted rookie, he also spent time in the D-League (which is now known as the G League), and now finds himself back there as a veteran hoping to prove he's worth another look.

In 480 career games, Lin is averaging 11.6 points, 4.3 assists and 2.8 rebounds.

He can still provide serviceable minutes in a bench role, and with the Warriors not looking as dominant given the massive hole left behind by Klay Thompson, it's possible Lin could play himself into a promotion if he impresses in the G League.
