Brooklyn Nets trade Jeremy Lin to Atlanta Hawks

Brooklyn Nets trade Jeremy Lin to Atlanta Hawks

Along with Lin, the Nets will give the Hawks a 2025 second-round pick and the right to swap picks in 2023, per to the report.

The Brooklyn Nets traded the oft-traveled point guard to the Atlanta Hawks, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Thursday night.

In a separate deal, the Nets traded Coney Island native Whitehead to Denver, in exchange for Faried - who is from Newark - Darrell Arthur, a 2019 first-round pick (protected 1-through-12) and a future second-round pick.




Lin, 29, played just 25 minutes last season before suffering a season-ending ruptured patellar tendon on opening night.

Lin has a year and $12.5 million left on the contract he signed two summers ago.

Spencer Dinwiddie stepped in while Lin was out and became one of the NBA's most improved players. The Hawks then acquired the rights to high-scoring former Oklahoma star Trae Young in the draft. Denver also got rid of $21 million in salary with the deal, with the bulk of that coming from the $13.8 million Faried is owed next season. A hamstring injury limited him to 36 games in the 2016-17 season. Arthur, 30, averaged 2.8 points and 0.8 rebounds in 19 contests.
