Linsanity is coming to Canada.

Lin gives the Raptors obvious depth at both guard spots, and will likely - once he clears waivers and joins Toronto - spend time backing up point guard Kyle Lowry and shooting guard Danny Green.

National Basketball Association point guard Jeremy Lin is completing a contract buyout agreement with the Atlanta Hawks that will allow him to sign with the Toronto Raptors.

It's been just over seven years since "Linsanity" descended on the New York Knicks, via a little-known point guard named Jeremy Lin. The Raptors would be the eighth National Basketball Association team Lin has played for in his career, which includes stops with the Warriors, Knicks, Rockets, Lakers, Hornets, Nets, and Hawks.

Lin and the Hawks worked out a buyout agreement.

Toronto Raptors guard Fred VanVleet will miss at least three weeks with a left thumb injury, the team says. But with some playoff experience (17 games) to offer, along with double-digit scoring off the bench, Lin is sure to quickly become a fan favorite in Toronto. The Raptors host the Brooklyn Nets on Monday night.

The Raptors entered Monday with a 41-16 record and second place in the Eastern Conference behind only NBA-leading Milwaukee. Adding Lin doesn't necessarily qualify as an attack of the buyout market, but there haven't been many getting done to this point.
