Hawks acquire Jeremy Lin from Nets

Hawks acquire Jeremy Lin from Nets

Lin joins a crowded backcourt in Atlanta with incumbent starter Dennis Schroder and 2018 top draft pick Trae Young on the roster, though the move likely spells the end of Schroder's time in a Hawks uniform if the front office can find a willing trade partner.

A person with knowledge of the deal says the Brooklyn Nets have agreed to trade Jeremy Lin to the Atlanta Hawks.

The Brooklyn Nets have traded Jeremy Lin to the Atlanta Hawks.

It is unclear what else the Nets will receive in return. As part of the deal, the two teams will also exchange future second-round picks.

Russell could be in line for a rookie-scale extension, but he will have to show more than what he has during his 48 games as a Net to warrant the franchise taking a long-term gamble on his future.

Lin, 29, played just 25 minutes last season before suffering a season-ending ruptured patellar tendon on opening night. He's entering the final year of his contract after playing eight seasons, including stints with the Knicks, Rockets, Lakers and Hornets. Faried is owed $13.76 million this season, and Arthur is set to earn $7.46 million. Arthur, 30, averaged 2.8 points and 0.8 rebounds in 19 contests. The Coney Island native averaged 6.3 points and 1.3 assists in 16 games last season, spending much of the year in the G League.
