Hornets sign Jeremy Lin

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- The Charlotte Hornets have signed free agent Jeremy Lin, giving them depth and another scoring option at point guard.
 
   Terms of the deal were not released Thursday.
 
   Hornets general manager Rich Cho is hoping Lin bolsters Charlotte's second-team offense, saying "we have made a concerted effort to upgrade the offense" this offseason.
 
   Cho says there may be some trade off when it comes to the team's overall defense, but is confident coach Steve Clifford will get the Hornets to play at a high level.
 
   The 6-foot-33 Lin has played in 291 NBA games for the Warriors, Knicks, Rockets and Lakers in five seasons, averaging 11.7 points, 4.8 assists, 2.6 rebounds and 1.3 steals in 26.9 minutes.
 
   He's a career 43.7 percent shooter, including 34.9 percent from 3-point range.
