Jeremy Lin is now balling under the bright lights of the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas for the Dallas Mavericks.
Lin’s agent, Roger Montgomery, said additional teams inquired about the Harvard graduate Friday after Lin’s exceptional effort Thursday night when he battled toe-to-toe with John Wall, the Washington Wizards’ No. 1 overall draft pick. While those other teams could be considered, the 6-foot-3, 200-pound Lin is studying the roster fit of the three frontrunners. Montgomery and Nelson are expected to talk in the next 48 hours, with Lin’s decision expected soon afterward.
Lin could become the first Harvard player in the NBA since Ed Smith in 1953.
