Jeremy Lin traded to Hawks

Jeremy Lin is headed to his fifth NBA team in the last five years.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported on Thursday that the Brooklyn Nets have traded the veteran guard to the Atlanta Hawks. As part of the deal, the two teams will also exchange future second-round picks.

Lin’s time with the Nets was plagued by injury. 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. The season before that, he missed significant time with a hamstring issue, leading to him playing only 37 total games in a Brooklyn uniform.

The Hawks, who went 24-58 last season, figure to be pretty bad again this year and could use the talent wherever they can get it. The acquisition of Lin also casts further doubt on the future of incumbent starting point guard Dennis Schroder, who has been a popular subject of trade rumors in recent weeks.
