Nets Trade Jeremy Lin to the Hawks

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

Once again, Jeremy Lin is headed to a new city.

The Atlanta Hawks traded Portland's 2020 second-round pick and former draft-and-stash selection Isaia Cordinier to the Brooklyn Nets late Thursday night in exchange for the 29-year-old point guard, a 2025 second-round pick and the rights to swap second-round picks in 2023.

The move helps clear up the Nets' logjam at point guard and sends Lin to another team that is also pretty crowded at the position.

Russell could be in line for a rookie-scale extension, but he will have to show more than what he has during his 48 games as a Net to warrant the franchise taking a long-term gamble on his future.

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 past year. He produced 2.8 points in 7.4 minutes per game.

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

The Hawks will be the seventh team for Lin, the undrafted former Harvard star who memorably broke out with the Knicks during his run of Linsanity in February 2012.

The trade with the Nuggets was a salary dump for Denver. Both are entering the final years of their contract.

Whitehead, 23, averaged 6.3 points and 1.6 rebounds in 16 games off the Brooklyn bench last season.
