As most expected, Lin wasn't able to top the Linsanity fad from his time with the New York Knicks, having a rather disappointing two-year stint with the Nets.

The Atlanta Hawks have agreed to a trade with the Brooklyn Nets that will send guard Jeremy Lin to Atlanta, per a report from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. ESPN first reported the deal, saying the Nets and Hawks would swap future second-round picks. 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.

Lin, who broke into the league with the 2010-11 Warriors where Schlenk was in Golden State's front office, suffered a season-ending ruptured patellar tendon in the Nets' opener past year. In the previous season, Lin averaged 14.5 points and 5.1 assists per game.
