Jeremy Lin traded by the Brooklyn Nets to the Atlanta Hawks

Jeremy Lin's frustratingly injury-filled, unfulfilled 2-year tenure with the Brooklyn Nets has come to an end. He's been traded from the Brooklyn Nets to the Atlanta Hawks for the last year of his contract. Post at

After a rich NBA learning curve with the Warriors, Knicks, Rockets, Lakers, and Hornets, the situation with the Nets seemed tailor-made professionally and culturally for Lin to graduate to starting lead guard with his own team in his age-28 season. The fates decided it was not to be. Lin will be entering his age-30 season in 2018-2019, the same age that Steve Nash returned to the Suns in 2004-2005 and became a Hall-of-Fame guard, so maybe Lin will make the leap with the Hawks, instead. Hopefully, his injury-filled tenure with the Nets doesn't mean Lin will be chronically injured and/or limited to bench play for the rest of his NBA career.
