Jeremy Lin Rumors: Point Guard Returning To New York Knicks? 'Absolutely,' Says Mike Woodson

Jeremy Lin will be a restricted free agent this summer, making it a possibility that he won't return to the New York Knicks. But if you trust Mike Woodson, Lin won't be anywhere but the Big Apple next season.

"Will he back next year? Absolutely," Woodson told reporters Thursday, as quoted by Howard Beck of the New York Times.

Oddly enough, Woodson might not be around to coach him. The perfectly-goateed coach denied a recent report saying he and the Knicks had started working on a contract extension, and rumors continue to link the Knicks with Phil Jackson and/or John Calipari.

The Knicks performed admirably under Woodson -- they finished the regular season on an 18-6 run and won their first playoff game in more than a decade -- but the front office could be looking for a bigger name to lead the Knicks next year.
