Jeremy Lin Traded To Hawks: Dennis Schroder On The Way Out?

Jeremy Lin Traded To Hawks: Dennis Schroder On The Way Out?

As first reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Nets have agreed to send point guard Jeremy Lin to Atlanta as the precursor to another trade with the Denver Nuggets.

Lin, 29, played in only one game last season with Brooklyn, sustaining a season-ending ruptured patellar tendon on opening night. According to Woj, Atlanta will also receive a 2025 second round pick and the right to swap second round picks in 2023.

Lin missed essentially all of last season for Brooklyn after tearing his ACL in the season-opener against the Pacers.

In a separate deal, the Nets traded Coney Island native Whitehead to Denver, in exchange for Faried - who is from Newark - Darrell Arthur, a 2019 first-round pick (protected 1-through-12) and a future second-round pick. In 67 games last season, Schroder averaged a career-best 19.4 points per game, in addition to 6.2 assists and 3.1 rebounds.

The trade with the Nuggets was a salary dump for Denver. Brooklyn also has D'Angelo Russell, the No. 2 pick in the 2015 draft, at the point after acquiring him from the Lakers. Both are entering the final years of their contract.
