Report Brooklyn Nets trade Jeremy Lin to the Atlanta Hawks

The Brooklyn Nets have traded guard Jeremy Lin and a future second-round pick to the Atlanta Hawks in exchange for a future second-round pick, league sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. According to the report, the Hawks will send the Nets a 2020 second-round pick originally from Portland and the rights to 2016 second-round pick Isaia Cordinier, who to date has remained in his native France.

Lin has a year left on his contract, and the trade ends his injury-plagued stint in Brooklyn.

The Nets weren't done there, either. The Nuggets will receive Isaiah Whitehead in the deal.

It looks like Dennis Schroder's days in Atlanta are numbered, as the Hawks went out and traded for veteran point guard Jeremy Lin last night, just weeks after drafting point guard Trae Young with the fifth overall pick in the NBA Draft.


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

The Post reported last month the Nets had been shopping Lin, and that they had been looking to take Nuggets big man Kenneth Faried in a salary dump to get a pick. Arthur, 30, averaged 2.8 points and 0.8 rebounds in 19 contests.

Whitehead, 23, averaged 6.3 points and 1.6 rebounds in 16 games off the Brooklyn bench last season.
