Jeremy Lin to be introduced to the media and Nets fans in a press conference on July 20

Jeremy Lin will be officially introduced to the media and Brooklyn fans in a press conference on July 20. He is going to be joined by other players signed by the Nets including Anthony Bennett, Trevor Booker, Justin Hamilton, Joe Harris and Caris LeVert.

The 27-year-old point guard headlines the newest set of Nets players that were acquired in this year’s free agency. He reportedly signed a three-year, $36 million deal with a $12.5 million player option for the final year.

According to the YES Network, the press conference will be held at the HSS Training Center in Brooklyn on Wednesday, 1:00 PM. Lin, Bennett, Booker, Hamilton and Harris are all free agent signings while LeVert is the Nets’ lone pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.

Luis Scola, Greivis Vasquez, and Randy Foye were also signed by the Nets this offseason but they won’t be present in the press conference. Scola and Vasquez are on national team duties while Foye has a conflict on his schedule.

Lin and LeVert are the only players that received deals with more than two years as the Nets only signed Bennett, Booker, Foye, Hamilton and Harris to two-year contracts. On the other hand, Scola and Vasquez are only signed for one season.

On the other hand, Jeremy Lin has arrived in New York and visited the HSS Training Center on Saturday. He called the Nets’ training facility “quite nice” and praised the view.
