Jeremy Lin has announced he will seek a return to the NBA next season.
Lin played this season for the Beijing Ducks in the Chinese Basketball Association.
“This decision has really been the hardest in my life,” Lin told his seven million followers in Mandarin in a tearful video on Weibo.
“Every morning I would wake up at 4am or 5am, thinking, thinking and thinking all the time.
“In the end, although Shougang has treated me incredibly well … giving me everything I wanted, in the end, I feel that I still have NBA dreams. I still have time to play and I have to chase this.”
