New York Knicks: Jeremy Lin's Return 'Highly Doubtful' According To Yahoo! Sources

Jeremy Lin's return to the New York Knicks for the 2012-13 season is in serious jeopardy. At least, that's what Yahoo! Sports' NBA writer Marc. J. Spears is saying Sunday via Twitter.

Spears' tidbit came just a few hours after writer David Aldridge wrote that the Knicks' acquisition and signing of veteran point guard Raymond Felton to a three-year, $10 million deal could spell the end of the Linsanity era; and before's Stephen A. Smith reported sources inside the organization are telling him that New York will not match the contract offer.

Reports are that the Rockets' three-year offer to Lin, which is backloaded, would cause a lot of financial issues for the Knicks in the next few years.

However, the Knicks letting Lin go isn't a sure thing yet, as New York's front office brass is taking their time on rejecting the deal, leading some to believe things are still trying to be worked out.
