Hey, PRD: Are you ready to go Lin-sane? Taiwanese-American basketball sensation Jeremy Lin will soon be coming to Guangzhou and Dongguan as part of his week-long China tour, reports China Post.
Lin announced his arrival in China yesterday on his Weibo account.
Dongguan serves as a homecoming of sorts for Lin, who played a few games with the Dongguan Leopards in 2011. He also returned to the city in 2012 to give a four-day basketball training camp as a precursor to the opening of a fully-fledged basketball school in the city.
Lin begins his ten-day tour of China in Beijing, with other stops scheduled in Wuhan and Shanghai. The Houston Rockets point guard will then travel to Taiwan for a week-long stay starting on July 16.
The China tour takes place at a time when trade rumors have been especially strong concerning Lin. The Milwaukee Bucks and the Philadelphia 76ers are reported to be trying to court Lin while the Houston Rockets have openly tried to enlist the services of Anthony Carmelo.
As per his signed contract, Lin is to be paid $15 million to play for the Houston Rockets next season.
