Jeremy Lin traded by Brooklyn Nets to Atlanta Hawks

Sergio Cook | 14 July, 2018, 09:51

The Nets are at the center of two trades as they will send Jeremy Lin to the Hawks and move Isaiah Whitehead to the Nuggets in exchange for Kenneth Faried, Darrell Arthur, a 2019 protected first-round pick and a future second-round pick, Adrian Wojnarowksi of ESPN.com reports.

Wojnarowski noted that league sources indicated the Lin trade will likely speed up the process of the Hawks trading guard Dennis Schroder this summer.

Spencer Dinwiddie stepped in while Lin was out and became one of the NBA's most improved players.

Lin will be entering his ninth season in the National Basketball Association next fall, and the Hawks mark the 6-foot-3 point guard's sixth team.

Last October, Lin ruptured a right knee tendon in the season opener and missing the remainder of the 2017-18 campaign.

Since leaving the Knicks, Lin has played with the Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers, the Charlotte Hornets and the Nets. Schroder, a former first-round pick, started 145 games for Atlanta over the past two seasons, but he made public comments encouraging a trade to a contender earlier this offseason and then Travis Schlenk's scouting staff traded back to tab Young with the No. 5 overall selection. 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.

The Nets had acquired Whitehead in a draft night trade with Utah in 2016.
