NBA free agency is basically over at this point and no one has signed veteran point guard Jeremy Lin.

Lin doesn’t appear to be taking the rejection from the league very well.

During an appearance on Asian Christian network GOOD TV, Lin lamented that he had hit rock bottom because the NBA has given up on him.

Every year it gets harder. And in English there’s a saying and it says once you hit rock bottom, the only way is up. But rock bottom just seems to keep getting more and more rock bottom for me. So, free agency has been tough. Because I feel like in some ways the NBA’s kind of given up on me.”

Lin currently has an overseason offer from CSKA Moscow.

NBA teams are apparently concerned about Lin’s mobility at this stage of his career.

Lin’s former teammate Trae Young had some positive words for Lin.
