Nets planned Jeremy Lin trade to clear guard logjam

  • Jeremy Lin

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the trade had not been announced. Atlanta will send Brooklyn the rights to 2016 second-round pick Isaia Cordinier and receive a 2025 second-round pick from the Nets along with the right to swap picks with the Nets in 2023 as a part of the deal involving Lin, Wojnarowski reports.

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

The team was hoping to clear the logjam at the guard position, which already has D'Angelo Russell, Spencer Dinwiddie, Allen Crabbe, and Caris LeVert to split playing time. The 29-year-old tore his right patellar tendon in the first game of the 2017-18 season and missed the rest of the year.


Jeremy Lin played a mere 37 games over two seasons with the Nets and while he was a fantastic teammate, he also helped Kenny Atkinson ease into his first head coaching role in the league.

Lin, who turns 30 next month, was the first U.S. player of Chinese or Taiwan heritage to play in the National Basketball Association when he joined the Golden State Warriors in 2010. In 406 career games with the Nets, Hornets, Lakers, Rockets, Knicks and Warriors, the eight-year veteran has registered averages of 12.0 points, 2.9 rebounds and 4.5 assists in 26.6 minutes per contest.
