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". Lin has never advanced beyond the first round of the playoffs.

This would be a good addition for the Raptors as Lin can come off the bench and provide some much-needed depth behind Kyle Lowry and Fred Van Vleet who have had missed time with injuries.

Lin thanked the Hawks in his post, saying they helped him "become myself again on the basketball court and allowed me to experience the joy of hoops again!"

VanVleet will wear a splint for the next three weeks before being re-evaluated.

Lin is averaging 10.7 points and 3.5 assists while shooting 46.6% from the field in his ninth season.
