The 27-year-old Lin will reunite with Nets head coach Kenny Atkinson, who was a Knicks assistant when “Linsanity” happened in 2011-12.
After getting the largest payday of his career, Lin tweeted out a photo of himself in a Nets jersey with the caption: “The journey continues…thankful for the next chapter!! #Godisgood”
