Sources say that the Warriors, meanwhile, would be interested in using their open roster spot to try to bring Lin back if he clears. New Warriors owner Joe Lacob remains one of Lin's biggest fans and didn't want to release him earlier this month, but Golden State had no other choice thanks to the offer sheet it ultimately extended to then-restricted free agent DeAndre Jordan.
