Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported on Thursday that the Brooklyn Nets have traded the veteran guard to the Atlanta Hawks.

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

Lin told the Nets website earlier this week that he has yet to participate in full-contact drills as he rehabs the injury.

The Nets weren't done there, either.

In a separate deal, the Nets traded Coney Island native Whitehead to Denver, in exchange for Faried - who is from Newark - Darrell Arthur, a 2019 first-round pick (protected 1-through-12) and a future second-round pick.

The Nuggets, who also reportedly just agreed to a one-year deal with Isaiah Thomas, will waive Whitehead, according to Wojnarowski.

Jeremy Lin is headed to his fifth National Basketball Association team in the last five years. He has said he expects to be ready for training camp.

Two major priorities for the Nets this offseason were getting another first-round pick and easing a glut at point guard.

For Denver, they were looking to clear salary to stay under the luxury tax. He produced 2.8 points in 7.4 minutes per game.
