LIN'S NEW TEAM . . . Palo Alto High grad Jeremy Lin wasn't out of a job very long, after being waived by the Golden State Warriors last Friday. On Sunday, the Houston Rockets claimed the 23-year-old Lin off waivers, picking up the second year of his non-guaranteed contract — worth close to a reported $800,000. The 6-foot-3 Lin, a Harvard graduate, was a popular player with the Warriors but averaged only 2.6 points on 38.9 percent shooting in 29 games as a rookie last season. He spent much of the year traveling back and forth between the Warriors and their NBA Development League team, where he averaged 18 points, 5.8 rebounds and 4.3 assists with the Reno Bighorns. Lin's younger brother, Joseph, meanwhile, dished out five assists to help the Hamilton College men's basketball team defeat Vassar College, 96-71, last Saturday. Joseph also is a Paly grad.
