Brooklyn Nets trade Jeremy Lin to Atlanta Hawks

The Brooklyn Nets traded Lin on Thursday night to the Atlanta Hawks, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. Atlanta will send Brooklyn the rights to 2016 second-round pick Isaia Cordinier and receive a 2025 second-round pick from the Nets along with the right to swap picks with the Nets in 2023 as a part of the deal involving Lin, Wojnarowski reports.

But when the Knicks were hit by injuries, Lin was given a chance at major playing time and responded by sparking the Knicks to a seven-game win streak to level their record at 15-15.
