VIEW VIDEO & PHOTOS
The Golden State Warriors have signed free agent guard Jeremy Lin to a contract, the team announced today. Per team policy, terms of the agreement were not announced.
Lin, 21, recently completed a four-year stint at Harvard, where he averaged 12.9 points, 4.3 rebounds and 3.5 assists in 115 career outings. The 6’3” guard became the first player in Ivy League history to record at least 1,450 points, 450 rebounds, 400 assists and 200 steals. He was an All-Ivy League First Team selection this past season (2009-10), when he averaged 16.4 points, 4.5 assists, 4.4 rebounds and shot 51.9% from the floor in 29 games. A native of Palo Alto, Lin’s senior season at Harvard was highlighted by a 30-point, 9-rebound and 3-assist performance against #13 ranked Connecticut.
After not being selected in the 2010 NBA Draft, Lin played for the Dallas Mavericks in the 2010 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas earlier this month. He averaged 9.8 points and 3.2 rebounds in 18.6 minutes in five outings with the Mavericks, shooting a team-leading 54.5% from the floor.
As the captain of the Palo Alto High School basketball team as a senior in 2006, Lin guided the Vikings to the State Championship with a victory over Mater Dei at ARCO Arena in Sacramento.

The People I’ve Slept With is a sexy, romantic story about Angela (Karin Anna Cheung of Better Luck Tomorrow), a young woman with a zealously active sex life, who after every sexual conquest, makes keepsake “baseball cards” of each of her male conquests. One day, Angela finds out she is pregnant and begins a quest to find the identity of the father. Together with her gay, best friend and co-worker Gabriel (Wilson Cruz of He’s Just Not That Into You, My So-Called Life), the two go on a comical and raunchy hunt through her past hook-ups and dates to find her “baby daddy.” But as Angela peels back the layers of her frisky past, she begins to realize that the answers she is looking for, reveal themselves in surprising ways.
