Lakers News: Jeremy Lin Hopes For ‘More Important’ Role In L.A.

The Los Angeles Lakers will have a plenty of new faces on the squad next season with point guard Jeremy Lin being one of them. It is uncertain if Lin will be the starter heading into next season, but there’s a good chance he will start the year playing alongside Kobe Bryant in the backcourt.

After taking a backseat to Patrick Beverly with the Houston Rockets last season, Lin hopes he’ll get a fresh start with the Lakers by playing a substantial role with the team.

Lin talked about wanting to play a bigger role in Los Angeles via Want China Times:

“I wish my role could become bigger and more important, and I also wish I could get more playing time next year,” said the 25-year-old point guard.

With the Lakers recently waiving Kendall Marshall, the team currently has three point guards on the roster. Lin will join Steve Nash and rookie Jordan Clarkson as floor generals in Los Angeles. Although Nash is the seasoned veteran and might be healthy to start next season, Lin will likely be named the starter with the two-time NBA MVP backing him up.

As for Clarkson, the rookie made an impression during the NBA Summer League last week potentially increasing his chances of getting playing time during the 2014-15 season. Clarkson averaged a team-best 15.8 points and 5.0 rebounds per game while shooting 42 percent from the floor and beyond the arc.

Fortunately, the Lakers will finally have some solid young options at the point guard position moving forward. Lin and Clarkson could potentially be a dynamic duo at the position with both players possessing the ability to be a force offensively.
