The Hawks waived Lin on Monday, and his move to Toronto, first reported by ESPN, had "Linsanity" trending on Twitter.
The plans to enter into an agreement with Lin comes one day after the Raptors finalized the conversion of two-way player Chris Boucher's contract to an National Basketball Association standard contract.

Dating even further back than that, in 2012 during his "Linsanity" run he recorded a double-double of 27 points and 11 assists before burying a game-winning 3-pointer to beat the Raptors.
