Jeremy Lin says he's 'hyped' to join Toronto Raptors in Instagram post

Joe Harris, who was 7-of-8 from three on the night, threw it in to D'Angelo Russell who was unable to shake free of Danny Green's great closeout and missed a desperation heave off the rim.

After Leonard gave Toronto the lead with a 15-footer with 1:06 left, Harris closed the first half with two 3-pointers to give Brooklyn a 60-56 lead.

Gasol received a standing ovation when he checked in for Ibaka at 3:03 of the first.

The veteran point guard's arrival in Toronto would boost the Raptors, who will be without guard Fred VanVleet for at least three weeks because of a partially torn ligament in his left thumb. VanVleet was hurt in the second quarter of Saturday's (Sunday, PHL time) win at NY.




Wojnarowski also stated that the buyout is supposed to be completed Monday and Lin is expected to sign with the Raptors "as soon as mid-week".

Guard Jeremy Lin and the Atlanta Hawks are finalizing a buyout of his contract, and he then expects to sign with the Toronto Raptors, according to an ESPN report.

The 6-foot-3, 200-pounder carries career averages of 11.8 points, 2.3 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.1 steals in 25.8 minutes in 457 games (218 starts), with a shooting line of 43.6/34.8/80.9.

Russell scored 14 points in the third, but Ibaka had 12 for the Raptors, who tied it 92-all on Anunoby's driving basket in the final seconds of the quarter. The Nets shot 20-for-41 from three-point range. Coach Kenny Atkinson said Carroll should return Wednesday at Cleveland. Musician Sting attended the game.
