Jeremy Lin traded by Brooklyn Nets to Atlanta Hawks

Jeremy Lin is on the move again.

They took care of both late Thursday, trading Jeremy Lin to the Hawks and landing the Nuggets' 2019 first-round pick in a separate deal that shipped out Isaiah Whitehead.

For Brooklyn, the Denver trade was about using its cap space to acquire the protected first-round pick in 2019 to pair with its own and the unprotected 2020 second-round pick. The Nets and Atlanta will exchange future second-round picks, according to ESPN.

Lin, who was on an expiring $12.5 million contract, hasn't played since rupturing his patellar tendon during the opening game last season.

The 29-year-old guard is still rehabbing from his injury and told reporters he expects to be ready for training camp in about seven weeks. Brooklyn also has D'Angelo Russell, the No. 2 pick in the 2015 draft, at the point after acquiring him from the Lakers.

Arthur, 30, got in just 30 contests in 2017-18, making one start.

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