Jeremy Lin is headed to his fifth National Basketball Association team in the last five years. According to the report, the Hawks will send the Nets a 2020 second-round pick originally from Portland and the rights to 2016 second-round pick Isaia Cordinier, who to date has remained in his native France. The Hawks then acquired the rights to high-scoring former Oklahoma star Trae Young in the draft.
The Post reported last month the Nets had been shopping Lin, and that they had been looking to take Nuggets big man Kenneth Faried in a salary dump to get a pick. Faried is owed $13.76 million this season, and Arthur is set to earn $7.46 million.
An eight-year veteran, Lin has career averages of 12.0 points, 4.5 assists and 2.9 rebounds.
