Analysis: Lin was 6 of 7 from the floor and deserved more shots but, of course, Kobe Bryant was on the floor and he decided to hog the ball in the fourth quarter. Don't use Lin in fantasy action if Bryant is healthy.

The Lakers made the deal official Sunday.
Analysis: Lin will make about $15 million this season in the last year of a deal that counts only $8 million against the salary cap. The Lakers have cap room to absorb Lin's contract. Lin averaged 12.5 points and 4.1 assists last season but lost his starting job. The Harvard player was born in Los Angeles and figures to be popular with the city's large Asian community.
