Following unclear reports from earlier last week on whether or not there has been active solicitation for a book deal for New York Knicks sensation Jeremy Lin, over the weekend there was a clarifying statement from agent Richard Abate–who was working with Lin’s management in preliminary fashion, but is not doing so now.
Abate said: “Earlier this month, Mr. Lin’s representatives asked me to arrange meetings to explore the possibility of a book deal. As the frenzy surrounding Mr. Lin has escalated, his representatives wisely decided to postpone those meetings until they can approach the development of a book project with the thoughtful consideration it deserves.”
Abate added that “Mr. Lin’s representative are not entertaining book offers at this time, so I’m not currently acting on their behalf.”
