    Well, he is a smart dude. Hopefully, we will see that in his game...D'Ant mainly wants someone that can run the floor with energy and be able to dish the ball to the open man. Not much will be asked of him. However, if he has a good long ball shot and decent field vision...he can basically write his own ticket since we are physically hurting at the PG position. If he comes in here with focus and understanding of his job he'll be a solid pickup.

    Default Good feeling about Lin

    ...granted based only on the tape of his summer league performance.

    Still very quick, seems to have a good basketball IQ and passing skills, plays some defense. What is not to like, aside from lack of experience?
