Jeremy Lin Rumors: Agent Says Return To New York Knicks Not A Given

Mike Woodson believes Jeremy Lin will return to the New York Knicks next season after hitting free agency this summer. But Lin's agent isn't so sure.

Roger Montgomery told the New York Post it's not a given that his client will re-sign with the Knicks in free agency.

When asked if he expects the Knicks negotiation to be cut-and-dried, Montgomery forewarned: "I don't expect that. We're not anticipating that's going to happen. We don't have assurances of anything. I know history shows most restricted free agents go back to their team, but I'm not going to assume anything. We're waiting to see what happens.''

Because of Lin's status as a restricted free agent, the Knicks have the right to match any offer the point guard receives.
