With free agency about to begin 12:01 Sunday morning, these are exciting times for the Lin family. Jeremy and his family will be set for life in a week or two when his new contract is signed. It looks like he'll most likely receive a four year offer for between 22.4 to 40 million (I predict it will be closer to 40 million). Once Deron Williams decides, the dominoes will fall.
