Jeremy Lin: “Unfortunately, I am not going to be able to participate in Olympics”

July 3, 2012

Jeremy Lin will deprive the world of #LINSANITY, as he has withdrawn his name from the USA Basketball Olympic team.  Lin is currently a free agent and is more focused on the upcoming season then the Olympics.  Although it is a great honor for him to even be invited, Lin will have to do something he does very well, PASS on this opportunity!

“Unfortunately, I am not going to be able to participate in the 2012 USA Men’s Select Team this summer,” Lin said in a statement. “It was such an incredible honor to be selected, but I have withdrawn my name from the team because of my status as a free agent. I hope to have the opportunity to participate with USA Basketball at some point in the future.”

Again: Jeremy Lin has withdrawn from 2012 US Select Team due to contract status (restricted free agent).

This could be the REAL reason Lin has withdrawn.
