Jeremy Lin is bent on making an NBA return and based on the latest updates, it appears he is on track. However, there is a new obstacle ahead for the American-Asian with reports that his old Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) team wants him back.

According to the South China Morning Post, the Ducks are trying their best to convince “Linsanity” to return to China and give up his NBA dream. Though he ended his CBA stint abruptly, the Ducks wanting him back hardly comes as a surprise.

Though the CBA season was not spared from the coronavirus, a bubble-like environment allowed them to finish their season. Lin was one of their vital cogs for the Ducks, leading the club to the semi-finals before bowing to eventual champion, Guangdong Southern Tigers.

Lin put up decent numbers during his stint with the Ducks. He averaged 22.3 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 5.6 assists in a credible outing. But the Ducks knew from day one that Lin only came because no NBA team signed him. They may have to wait until after the off-season to find out if there is a chance that Lin will consider a return to China.

As of this writing, the team that could take in Lin appear to be the Golden State Warriors. Photos of the 32-year-old cager were seen on Instagram courtesy of Jordan Jimenez. Lin was seen playing with some other Warriors players like Eric Paschall, Kevon Looney, Marquese Chriss, and Alen Smailagic.

The Warriors are on the prowl for quality role players and Lin could be one of them. Lin even worked out with Stephen Curry, something that greatly increases the chances of seeing Lin return to the same team he suited up before.

If not the Dubs, other teams may give Lin a chance. The Brooklyn Nets, another former team Lin played for before, is also interested in bringing him back according to Hoops Hype. With NBA free agency still going on, more teams could explore options of adding the 6-foot-3 guard.

Regardless if it is just a bench role, Lin is likely to take it and continue his dream. If there are no takers, in the end, returning to the CBA is the most likely option left for the Harvard graduate.
