Hawks acquire Jeremy Lin, draft assets from Nets

Jeremy Lin

Jeremy Lin is headed to his fifth National Basketball Association team in the last five years.

The Atlanta Hawks have agreed to a trade with the Brooklyn Nets that will send guard Jeremy Lin to Atlanta, per a report from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. According to Wojnarowski, the team also worked a deal with the Denver Nuggets on Thursday night, receiving forwards Kenneth Faried and Darrell Arthur, a 2019 protected first-round pick and a 2020 second-round pick in exchange for guard Isaiah Whitehead.

Lin, who was on an expiring $12.5 million contract, hasn't played since rupturing his patellar tendon during the opening game last season. The season before that, he missed significant time with a hamstring issue, leading to him playing only 37 total games in a Brooklyn uniform.

Trump said Khan had done "a very bad job on terrorism" and said he had "not been hospitable to a government that is very important".

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

Meanwhile, the Hawks are adding another fun point guard to a backcourt that just drafted Trae Young and Kevin Huerter.

Since leaving the Knicks, Lin has played with the Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers, the Charlotte Hornets and the Nets. Arthur, 30, averaged 2.8 points and 0.8 rebounds in 19 contests.
