Sources: Knicks claim PG Jeremy Lin off waivers

Sources report that the Knicks have claimed 23-year-old Harvard graduate Jeremy Lin off waivers. New York badly needed to add some guard depth after the Christmas Day injury to rookie Iman Shumpert. Baron Davis is likely out until February and old-as-stone Mike Bibby is also nursing his usual aches and pains.

Lin doesn't have terrific career stats in his short time in the NBA but has a lot of upside and will provide the Knicks with another body while they wait for the rest of their roster to get healthy. Lin received a lot of attention after his 2010 Summer League duel with John Wall, which you can watch below.
