Mavs still competing for Lin's services
As a true point guard, the 6-foot-3 Lin was more dazzling, and at times more productive, than Rodrigue Beaubois on the Mavericks' summer league squad. He opened more eyes with each performance. He is in contract discussions with the Mavs, Los Angeles Lakers and an Eastern Conference team.
But his agent, Roger Montgomery, said Monday that new teams are now involved and that Lin is sorting through it.
Mavs president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson was the lone NBA executive to offer Lin a roster spot for the summer league, and had designs on developing Lin's game with the Texas Legends, the Mavs' D-League affiliate in Frisco.
But now Nelson has plenty of competition for Lin.
