NBA rumors: Enes Kanter, Zach Randolph, Jeremy Lin

Jeremy Lin is not an NBA All Star, but hes not much better than the role in which hes being utilized: as Trae Youngs backup. The Hawks basketball front office has been committed to losing games as they plan ahead for the upcoming Zion Williamson sweepstakes. Jeremy Lin has thrown a spanner in the works, however. Being one of the best backup point guards in the league, he has already contributed to plummeting their chances at getting a top-3 pick halfway through the season.
