Nets reportedly send Lin to Hawks, acquire two from Nuggets

Nets reportedly send Lin to Hawks, acquire two from Nuggets

Lin missed essentially all of last season for Brooklyn after tearing his ACL in the season-opener against the Pacers.

The Nets have agreed to trade Lin to the Atlanta Hawks, a person with knowledge of the deal said early Friday.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported on Thursday that the Brooklyn Nets have traded the veteran guard to the Atlanta Hawks.

The Nets weren't done there, either. It also gave the Nets' crowded backcourt additional breathing room, especially after the Nets also dealt Isaiah Whitehead to the Denver Nuggets in a separate transaction that immediately succeeded the Lin deal.

The 29-year-old guard is still rehabbing from his injury and told reporters he expects to be ready for training camp in about seven weeks.


Lin, headed to his seventh National Basketball Association team as he prepares to enter his ninth season, now joins a roster that includes two notable point guards, No. 5 overall pick Trae Young and veteran Dennis Schroder.

Lin finishes his tenure in Brooklyn with averages of 14.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per game.

Arthur, 30, got in just 30 contests in 2017-18, making one start.
