Jeremy Lin PG LAL 7 Days

Lin is expected to serve as the Lakers' second-string point guard this season, although anticipated starter Steve Nash is slated to receive regular time off throughout the upcoming campaign, the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Lin was previously expected to assume starting duties for the Lakers, who acquired the point guard from Houston earlier this offseason. However, upon new coach Byron Scott stating his preference to start Steve Nash, when available, Lin figures to begin the season off the bench. Nonetheless, Nash is will continue to sit out the second game of back-to-back sets, as well as other occasions this season, so Lin should still see his fair share of starts. Furthermore, given Lin's youth and health, he seems the best fantasy option among Lakers point guards this season.

Lin seems destined to be the starter at point guard this season, although no official announcement has been made, NBA.com reports.

Coming over to the Lakers in the last year of a three-year, $25 million contract, Lin will be looking to have a bounce back from a somewhat disappointing 2013-14 season. With Steve Nash's health an ever present question mark, it's not much of a surprise to see Lin as the starter at point in Los Angeles and should improve on his numbers from last season.

Jeremy Lin was officially introduced as a Los Angeles Laker during a press conference with general manager Mitch Kupchak on Thursday.

"I'm just really excited to be part of this organization," Lin said. "For me I'm viewing it as a fresh start, back in the state of California." Kupchak also mentioned that the Lakers tried to acquire Lin on multiple occasions. Lin also expressed his excitement about playing with Kobe Bryant. "I had the opportunity to play with Carmelo, James Harden and Kobe. I can learn a lot from him." With the uncertainty surrounding Steve Nash's health, it is likely that Lin will see a ton of minutes at point guard for the Lakers. If he can improve on the 12.5 points, and 4.1 assists he averaged last season, he could provide decent fantasy value moving forward.

The Lakers officially announced the acquisition of Jeremy Lin on Sunday.

"This trade allows us to acquire a solid player who will make us a better team, as well as draft picks to improve our team," said GM Mitch Kupchak. The Lakers received Jeremy Lin, the Rockets 2015 first-round pick, and a future second-round selection. The Rockets acquire the rights to overseas player Sergei Lishchuk. Lin will likely be the starting point guard in LA, and with the limited offensive options at the Lakers disposal, it's possible he improves a bit on last year's averages of 12.5 points, 4.1 assists, and 1.0 steals per game.

The Rockets are reportedly finalizing a deal that will send Jeremy Lin to the Lakers.

The move will give Houston the cap space to sign Chris Bosh, and Lin might just be the new starting point guard in Los Angeles. Details of the deal have yet to emerge, so we'll fill in the blanks as they become available.

The Rockets are reportedly trying to trade Jeremy Lin to the Lakers, who have copious salary cap space for Lin's expiring $14.9 million contract.

The Lakers and Bucks now seem like the frontrunners to acquire Lin, whom the Rockets need to unload in order to give Chris Bosh a max contract offer. The 76ers also aren't out of the running for Lin, but his fantasy value would probably be best served in L.A.

The Rockets are "moving quickly" to trade Jeremy Lin and clear enough cap space to make an offer to Chris Bosh, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

Lin has already been linked to the 76ers and Bucks, and Rockets GM Daryl Morey has simply been waiting for the first shoe to drop before trading Lin away. To entice a team to accept Lin's $15 million salary this year, Houston will likely include draft picks and/or young players. Bosh will reportedly get a max offer worth $96 million over four years, and if he accepts it the Rockets are expected to also match Chandler Parsons' hefty $45 million offer sheet from the Mavericks. Things will progress quickly now that LeBron has made his decision.

The Rockets' potential Jeremy Lin trade won't be put in motion until the Rockets secure a free-agent commitment.

The Sixers and Bucks are the two leading candidates to be trade partners. Those teams won't be looking to acquire Lin for his skills as a point guard, but more because of the draft picks and/or young players that would come with it. Lin's deal is worth almost $15 million this season, so the Rockets will need to get that off their books to add a third max player to Dwight Howard and James Harden.

The 76ers have expressed interest in trading for Jeremy Lin.

This isn't interest in the conventional sense since the draft picks or players that come with Lin are really what the 76ers want. Lin's contract is back-loaded and the Rockets will look to deal him in order to make room for another free agent. He would likely split time at point guard with Michael Carter-Williams.

The Rockets pre-informed Jeremy Lin of the use of No. 7 on the meeting with Carmelo Anthony on Wednesday.

Lin took to Twitter when the news of Rockets photoshopping Melo in a Houston No. 7 jersey at the team's facility. "If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them," Lin said. The Rockets are certainly going to look to deal him to clear some cap space.
