NBA point guard Jeremy Lin is in Iceland and made the day for a young local basketball player and his family when they bumped into the star in an ice cream parlour in their home town Akureyri (population 18.000), North Iceland. 14-year old Júlíus Orri Ágústsson was in the store with his mother Guðrún Gísladóttur when he spotted the Charlotte Hornets playmaker. After Júlíus had asked for and gotten an autograph from Lin, his mother invited the smiling and very friendly NBA star to shoot some hoops with her son. Lin, who has a reputation of being one of NBA’s good guys, duly accepted the offer and went on to play an one on one game with Júlíus on a small basket ball court that the family has in their back yard. The midnight sun created the perfect setting for this fantastic adventure for the young man and Lin showed he truly has a heart of gold. NBA can hardly have a better ambassador.

Charlotte, with $48 million in guaranteed contracts and $66 million in free-agent cap holds, will not be able to sign all five players, who will be coveted by teams overflowing with cap space. The odd man out is likely going to be Lin. With Lin opting out of his contract – and with non-Bird rights – Charlotte will have to use cap space to sign him. To create room, Charlotte would need to address Batum, Jefferson, Lee and Williams before circling back to Lin. The large cap holds have Charlotte over the salary cap.
