News Is This: Golden State Signs Jeremy Lin

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

If all the rumors are true - including ESPN's Marc Stein - Jeremy Lin is going to Golden State.

The Golden State Warriors are closing in on signing summer-league sensation Jeremy Lin, according to sources with knowledge of the talks.

Sources told on Tuesday that the Warriors, by offering to guarantee more than half of Lin's potential first-year salary of nearly $500,000, have reached an agreement in principle with the point guard from Harvard. Lin is expected to receive a multiyear deal, sources said. [...]

A Western Conference scout said of Lin's play in Las Vegas: "He showed that he can be an NBA point guard. He showed us he can finish, defend and has above-average athleticism."
I guess we'll all be following some Warriors next year?
