Former NBAer Jeremy Lin penned a contract with Kaohsiung Steelers, who are playing in the Taiwanese basketball league, P. League+ (PLG). The club officially announced the deal today.

The 34-year-old guard last played in the CBA at the Guangzhou Loong Lions club. He averaged 6.9 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 2.1 assists over seven games in China.

Lin also got fined by his former club in December for speaking out about China's strict COVID-19 controls. Soon after, he announced his departure.

The Taiwanese-American athlete is a nine-season NBA veteran who has career averages of 11.6 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 4.3 assists over 480 games with the Golden State Warriors, New York Knicks, Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers, Charlotte Hornets, Brooklyn Nets, Atlanta Hawks, and Toronto Raptors.

Lin left the NBA in 2019 after winning the championship with Toronto and tried to return there via G League, Santa Cruz Warriors, in 2021.

Eight-time NBA All-Star Dwight Howard joined the Taoyuan Leopards in the Taiwanese T1 League in November.
