Jeremy Lin traded by Brooklyn Nets to Atlanta Hawks

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

The Brooklyn Nets traded the oft-traveled point guard to the Atlanta Hawks, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Thursday night.

The Nets, meanwhile, get a 2020 second round pick (via the Portland Trail Blazers) and the rights to Isaia Cordinier, a 2016 second round pick who will probably never suit up for the team.

Lin told the Nets website earlier this week that he has yet to participate in full-contact drills as he rehabs the injury.

The Nets weren't done there, either.

The Nets will acquire Kenneth Faried, Darrell Arthur, a protected 2019 first round pick and a future second round pick from the Denver Nuggets. According to Woj, Atlanta will also receive a 2025 second round pick and the right to swap second round picks in 2023. 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.

A Newark native, Faried, 28, averaged 5.9 points and 4.8 rebounds in 32 games last season. According to Wojnarowski, however, league sources said they expect the Hawks to now trade Schroder this offseason.
