Nets Trade Jeremy Lin to the Hawks

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the trade had not been announced.

The New York Times, Newsday and ESPN reported the deal was set to be completed Friday with the Hawks sending Brooklyn a 2020 second-round NBA Draft pick and the rights to 21-year-old French guard Isaia Cordinier, who plays for Antibes in his homeland.

It is unclear what else the Nets will receive in return.

Lin joins a crowded backcourt in Atlanta with incumbent starter Dennis Schroder and 2018 top draft pick Trae Young on the roster, though the move likely spells the end of Schroder's time in a Hawks uniform if the front office can find a willing trade partner.

Whitehead also saw little action throughout the 2017-18 season as he only played 11.3 minutes per game in 16 outings with the Nets.

Lin became the first player in National Basketball Association history with at least 20 points and seven assists in each of his first five starts before undergoing left knee surgery in March to end his season.

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 NBA's first American-born player of Chinese or Taiwanese descent has also played for Golden State, Houston, the Lakers and Charlotte. In order to take on the salary in the Denver deal, the Atlanta trade must be completed first.

During a partially healthy season in Brooklyn during the 2016-17 season, Lin averaged 14.5 points and 5.1 assists over 36 games. Arthur, 30, averaged 2.8 points and 0.8 rebounds in 19 contests.
