Game 20 Charlotte Hornets vs Atlanta Hawks: Jeremy Lin Has 2nd Best Effective FG% for NBA Point Guards

Lin has scored the most points for Atlanta Hawks in 6th of the last 10 games which highlights his excellent performance in November.

And Jeremy Lin is currently ranked 19th in NBA for eFG% (59.2%). Jeremy Lin is the 2nd-best-ranked Point Guard in the NBA for eFG% after Steph Curry (64.6%).

Best NBA Team for Jeremy Lin in Possible Trades

The Atlanta Hawks are in pseudo-tanking mode in hope of getting Zion Williamson in 2019 NBA Draft so they don’t need Jeremy Lin’s services to win and would rather develop young players and still losing a lot of games.

Will Jeremy Lin’s strong performance attract more interest from NBA teams who has current need for starting Point Guards (i.e. Phoenix Suns, Orlando Magic) and backup Point Guards (i.e. Philadelphia 76ers, New Orleans Pelicans)? The Magic, 76ers, and Pelicans might be contending for the playoff so a strong playoff performance would help to increase his market values for a new contract in 2019. But on the other hand, a starting Point Guard position in Magic and the Suns will help to create a stability for a long-term position for Jeremy. Combined with the familiarity to Steve Clifford (former Hornets coach), it seems Orlando Magic might be the best destination for Jeremy Lin if they show interest to trade for him in December-February timeframe.
