Guard Jeremy Lin goes up to the basket during the 2015 NBA Global Games against Los Angeles Clippers in Shenzhen, Guangdong province, China.

The Brooklyn Nets have traded Jeremy Lin to the Atlanta Hawks.

Lin's time with the Nets was plagued by injury.

Brooklyn Nets guard Jeremy Lin passed the ball, in October 2017, as Philadelphia 76ers guards Ben Simmons, right, and JJ Redick defended during a preseason game in Uniondale, N.Y. The Nets have agreed to trade Lin to Atlanta, the Hawks announced today.

The Nets weren't done there, either. According to the report, the Nuggets will waive Whitehead.

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

Lin played just one game for the Nets in 2017-18 before rupturing the patella tendon in his right knee and missing the rest of the season. He has said he expects to be ready for training camp. In 2016-17, he averaged 14.5 points and 5.1 assists per game.

As for the other deal, the Nuggets freed up $21 million in salary and potentially save $43 million in payroll and luxury tax next season, Wojnarowski reported. In 406 career games with the Nets, Hornets, Lakers, Rockets, Knicks and Warriors, the eight-year veteran has registered averages of 12.0 points, 2.9 rebounds and 4.5 assists in 26.6 minutes per contest.
