NEW YORK (WFAN) – Jeremy Lin may soon find himself with a host of suitors, but Knicks coach Mike Woodson is confident the point guard will re-sign with New York.
“Absolutely he’s going to be back,” Woodson told the New York Post. “We like what he brings to the table. He’s our starting point guard. He’s a young point guard who’s still learning, and he’s going to be better. … Absolutely, he wants to be here.”
Lin, Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler were “wined and dined” by Woodson for two nights in Los Angeles last week, the Post reported. The website TMZ.com captured the coach and Lin sharing a fist-bump after dinner at Mastro’s Steakhouse in Beverly Hills.
