Hawks acquire Jeremy Lin from Nets

The deal will also trade future second-round draft picks. The Nuggets will receive Isaiah Whitehead in the deal.

Now, Lin will have to find room in Atlanta, where point guard Dennis Schroder was the Hawks' leading scorer last season.

The Jeremy Lin era has ended in Brooklyn, and the Nets acquired a protected 2019 first-round pick from Denver on a blockbuster night. During the 2016-17 campaign, Lin averaged 14.5 points and 5.1 assists for the Nets.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Brooklyn Nets agreed to trade Lin to the Hawks in exchange for a 2020 second-round pick (via Portland) and the rights to Isaia Cordinier, a 2016 second-round pick who has remained overseas.

Brexit Central: Government 'lying to MPs' over Brexit deal
Speaking on ITV's Good Morning Britain today, Ms Thornberry said it is "extraordinarily rude of Donald Trump to behave like this". We must deal with the causes but also enforcement and where we have lost £7m in our budget in London I have invested £4m.

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.

For Denver, they were looking to clear salary to stay under the luxury tax. He ruptured the patella tendon in his right knee during the Nets' opener last season, and while he was out Spencer Dinwiddie stepped in and became one of the NBA's most improved players.

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