BEIJING, July 26 (Xinhuanet) -- NBA franchise the Los Angeles Lakers has been showing off its latest acquisition — Jeremy Lin. The point guard was dealt by the Houston Rockets earlier this month, as the Texas club tried to clear space under the salary cap in an unsuccessful attempt to lure Chris Bosh from Miami Heat.
Lin was introduced to the media at the Lakers training facility in suburban Los Angeles. The Asian-American guard will now join his third team in four seasons and will wear the number 17 in Hollywood. Lin was surprised he was dealt, but he is looking forward to the challenge of playing with a new team and its star player Kobe Bryant.
