Jeremy Lin net worth and salary
Jeremy Lin's estimated net worth as of 2017 was $18 million, but his net value of 2018 is under review. Back in 2012, while his 2nd year in NBA, Forbes called him The $170 million man. In the post, Forbes said that he turned into $170 million because of some calculation even though he was receiving only $800,000 salary then.
In 2016, while joining Brooklyn Nets, Lin signed a contract worth $36 million for three years. According to the deal, the player received a basic salary of $11,483,254 in 2016-2017 and $12 million in 2017-2018. And as of 2018-2019, he will be earning a base salary of $12,516,746.
However, his salary was not as high when he made his debut in NBA. In 2010, he signed a 2-year deal with his first team Golden State Warriors through which he received a basic salary of $500,000 in the first year.
Later in 2012, he signed deals with Housten Rockets worth $25 million for three years. During the first year, he was paid $5 million, around $5.225 million in the following year, and in the final year, he received a salary of $14.8 million.
