Lin was traded to Atlanta for an unprotected 2020 second-round pick via Portland and.

The Hawks have acquired point guard Jeremy Lin from the Nets, according to ESPN.

The Nets and Atlanta will exchange future second-round picks, according to ESPN.

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, 29, played in only one game last season with Brooklyn, sustaining a season-ending ruptured patellar tendon on opening night.




Lin will be entering his ninth season in the National Basketball Association next fall, and the Hawks mark the 6-foot-3 point guard's sixth team.

Lin became an worldwide sensation during the 2011-2012 season.

Meanwhile, the Hawks are adding another fun point guard to a backcourt that just drafted Trae Young and Kevin Huerter. The NBA's first American-born player of Chinese or Taiwanese descent has also played for Golden State, Houston, the Lakers and Charlotte. Both are entering the final years of their contract.

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.
