“No regrets about the past, excited for the future,” he wrote. “Still got a lot of basketball left in me and we’ll see where this road goes. Beijing Ducks, excited to be back this upcoming season! Thank you all for going on this journey with me.”
Lin, 32, spent last season with the Ducks before play was suspended because of the coronavirus. He compiled averages of 22.3 points, 5.7 rebounds and 5.6 assists and was among the finalists for CBA Defensive Player of the Year.
He returned to the U.S. in search of another NBA opportunity, signing with the Warriors in December in order to play for Santa Cruz in the G League bubble.
He appeared in nine games with Santa Cruz, averaging nine games, averaging 19.8 points and 6.4 assists, and shooting 51 percent from the floor, including 43 percent on 3-pointers.
Lin’s most recent NBA experience came in 2018-19 with the then-champion Raptors, making him the first Asian-American to win a title.
Along with the Raptors and Warriors, he has spent time with the Nets, Hornets, Lakers, Rockets and Knicks.
