Jeremy Lin’s solid performance this season has raised his demand in the free agency market. His every foot-steps are keenly followed since he has a huge fan base. Many teams are expected to pitch offers for the Charlotte Hornets point guard. Dallas Mavericks and Memphis Grizzlies are two teams who may help by acquiring Lin if he decides to leave the Hornets.

The 28-year-old has revealed that he is not considering money as the most important factor in the free agency market. Being considered for the starting role could become a key to Jeremy Lin’s decision in this free agency.

The Mavs may lose Deron Williams and Raymond Felton this summer. Two of their point guards Devin Harris and J.J. Barea has another year in their contracts. Felton and Williams are above the thirties, so should the Mavs management reconsider them for next season?

Here Jeremy Lin’s name comes in as a target. The ball handler could be Rick Carlisle‘s new trump card at the point-guard position, but the only critical point which goes against Lin is his poor shooting. If the Mavs can retain Chandler Parsons, the 28-year-old sensation easily fits on the roster as veteran Dirk Nowitzki and Wes Matthews are also there as prolific shooters.

If Mike Conely doesn’t re-sign with the Memphis Grizzlies, the team becomes vulnerable at the point-guard position. Memphis also started with Jordan Farmer at the end of the 2015-16 season due to injury problems. Under a new head coach, the Grizzlies are eyeing to enter a new era, and it’s quite obvious that they will be considering to boost their disastrous shooting by roping in some quality shooters. And Lin comes in to fill up the void at the point-guard position.
