The Brooklyn Nets held a press conference on Wednesday to introduce all of their summer additions. The biggest name of the bunch is Jeremy Lin who will be the new starting point guard, and he's joined by Anthony Bennett, Trevor Booker, Justin Hamilton, Joe Harris and Caris Levert.

The 27-year-old Lin, sporting a fancy new doo, is making a return to New York where he made headlines with "Linsanity" - a brief period of outstanding play for the Knicks that was cut short by a knee injury and then Lin's exit to Houston via free agency.

He averaged 22.5 points and 9.2 assists over 10 games with the Knicks and was embraced by the Asian-American and international community. After two seasons with Houston, Lin spent one with the Los Angeles Lakers and another with the Charlotte Hornets.

Lin comes to Brooklyn in a starting role where he is reuniting with coach Kenny Atkinson, the former Knicks assistant coach, as Lin signed a three-year, 36 million dollar contract for this coming season.
