A person with knowledge of the deal says the Brooklyn Nets have agreed to trade Jeremy Lin to the Atlanta Hawks. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the trade had not been announced. The 29-year-old tore his right patellar tendon in the first game of the 2017-18 season and missed the rest of the year.

According to Wojnarowski, Atlanta is also sending Brooklyn a 2020 second-round pick via Portland.

The Jeremy Lin era has ended in Brooklyn, and the Nets acquired a protected 2019 first-round pick from Denver on a blockbuster night. The deal will also trade future second-round draft picks. A hamstring injury limited him to 36 games in the 2016-17 season.

Along with Lin, the Nets will give the Hawks a 2025 second-round pick and the right to swap picks in 2023, per to the report.

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. The Coney Island native averaged 6.3 points and 1.3 assists in 16 games last season, spending much of the year in the G League. Arthur, 30, averaged 2.8 points and 0.8 rebounds in 19 contests.
