Lakers News: Jeremy Lin "Keeping Options Open", Won't Rule Out Summer Exit

It's safe to say that since joining the Lakers last July, Jeremy Lin hasn't lived up to expectations.

No one thought Lin would come out and play like he did during his Linsanity days - his numbers and efficiency had declined steadily over two seasons in Houston, but fans still thought he'd be a serviceable point guard.

The results have not been good. Lin is shooting .429 (his lowest percentage since his rookie year as a benchwarmer for the Warriors), and his scoring and efficiency have plummeted while his fouls and turnovers have risen. Some of this is no doubt due to the chaos around him, but even Byron Scott has been critical of Lin in recent weeks, telling reporters after Sunday's game that Lin 'wasn't good' and 'could have played a lot better'.

Lin told Sheridan Hoops that he knows things haven't gone to plan, and he can't rule out a change of scenery until the season ends:

“I’ll just cross that bridge when the time comes,” Lin said. “I’m keeping my options open and see what’s out there. I’m just going to evaluate everything when the time comes because right now you could say stuff, but it doesn’t really matter until I’m presented (with something) at the time because I don’t know what the landscape is going to look like.”

Lin is earning $8,374,646 from the Lakers this season, and will become an unrestricted free agent this summer.
