As first reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Nets have agreed to send point guard Jeremy Lin to Atlanta as the precursor to another trade with the Denver Nuggets.

Lin, 29, played just 25 minutes last season before suffering a season-ending ruptured patellar tendon on opening night. Brooklyn is clearing the remaining one year and $12.5 million on Lin's contract in order to make enough room to take on Kenneth Faried, Darrell Arthur and a pair of draft picks from Denver. As part of the deal, the two teams will also exchange future second-round picks.

Lin joins rookie point guard Trae Young and veteran Dennis Schroder in a crowded back court with the Hawks.

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. Lin averaged 14.5 points, 5.1 assists and 3.8 rebounds in 36 games for the Nets during the 2016-17 season while dealing with a lingering hamstring injury.
