Nets planned Jeremy Lin trade to clear guard logjam

  • Jeremy Lin

Guard Jeremy Lin goes up to the basket during the 2015 NBA Global Games against Los Angeles Clippers in Shenzhen, Guangdong province, China.

Brooklyn Nets guard Jeremy Lin passed the ball, in October 2017, as Philadelphia 76ers guards Ben Simmons, right, and JJ Redick defended during a preseason game in Uniondale, N.Y. The Nets have agreed to trade Lin to Atlanta, the Hawks announced today.

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.

But when the Knicks were hit by injuries, Lin was given a chance at major playing time and responded by sparking the Knicks to a seven-game win streak to level their record at 15-15.




The Nets weren't done there, either.

Lin, who broke into the league with the 2010-11 Warriors where Schlenk was in Golden State's front office, suffered a season-ending ruptured patellar tendon in the Nets' opener previous year.

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. 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.
