NEW YORK — Jeremy Lin has been signed by the Brooklyn Nets.

Lin announced the news on Twitter and posted the image below Friday morning.

ESPN is reporting that the point guard has signed with the team for a three-year, $36 million deal.

Lin signed to a two-year contract with the Charlotte Hornets last August but terminated it early to explore free agency.

This also isn’t the first time he has been in New York. The 28-year-old created the “Linsanity” craze back in 2011 and 2012 when he played for the New York Knicks.

The then-little-known second-year guard from Harvard scored at least 20 points nine times in a 10-game span and blossomed into one of the league’s biggest stories at that time.
