Former New York Knicks point guard and current restricted free-agent Jeremy Lin has been withdrawn from the USA Men’s Olympic Select Team.
The Select Team is a roster full of young NBA players who will practice against the actual stars going to London. Playing against the Select Team will help prepare the actual Olympic roster before it heads overseas.

Lin is still without a team and it may be some time before he signs a contract. The Knicks will be the front-runners in re-signing him, but other squads could make a push for “Linsanity.”
