Los Angeles Lakers Free Agency Rumors: Point Guard Jeremy Lin on his way to Dallas?

The Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks are in conversations for a sign-an-trade deal that will move point guard Jeremy Lin to Dallas, according to report.

After acquiring DeAndre Jordan and letting go of Monta Ellis, the Mavericks are looking for a point guard that would carry them into the next level. The Mavericks are highly interested in acquiring Lin but their salary cap level is one of the hindrances. On the other hand, the Lakers landed Roy Hibbert after failing to get LaMarcus Aldridge and other big men in the free agency. The Lakers are shopping players just to create cap space before they can sign more free agents on July 9.

Picking point guard DeAngelo Williams in the NBA Draft was an indication that the Lakers are no longer interested with Jeremy Lin, whose game is not compatible with the system of Byron Scott. While Lin is one of the most coveted free agents, Dallas doesn’t have much in the way of assets to trade to the Lakers. Surely, Lin would be an upgrade at the point guard position for the Mavs.

Lin played 74 games last season, averaging 11.2 points and 4.6 assists in 25.8 minutes per game. He started for 30 games but coach Scott decided to bench him at the latter part of the season.
