Hawks Land Jeremy Lin, Set Path For Dennis Shroder Trade

Published

on

The Atlanta Hawks have acquired point guard Jeremy Lin from the Brooklyn Nets  with the two teams swapping future second-round selections, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Lin spent two seasons in Brooklyn, but injuries have cut his time on the court, playing in only 36 games in 2016-2017 and one game the following season due to a serious knee injury in the first game of last season.

According to David Aldridge of NBA.com (h/t Alex Kennedy of Hoops Hype), the Hawks have no plans of cutting Lin and with Trae Young also in the backcourt, the Hawks seem to be paving the way for a trade that would ship Dennis Shroder out of town.

According to @daldridgetnt, the Atlanta Hawks will keep Jeremy Lin after this recent trade. Not to mention, rookie Trae Young is their franchise cornerstone. It seems a Dennis Schroder trade could be coming soon. Schroder was inherited by the new front office AND coaching staff.

Schroder has two more years left on his current contract and will earn $15.5 million in each of the last two years of his current deal.

Hawks’ Trae Young Eager to Learn from Jeremy Lin

Atlanta Hawks rookie guard Trae Young is excited to start his rookie season, and is eager to learn from experienced players, such as his teammate, veteran point guard Jeremy Lin who was acquired this offseason.

“From what I’ve heard, he’s going to be a great mentor for me,” Young said, according to Michael Scotto of The Athletic. “We’ve been talking. He’s a good dude. He’s been through the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. He’s seen it all, so I’m looking forward to picking his brain.”

Lin is widely believed to be the Hawks starting point guard this season, but that won’t deter Young, who is looking at the big picture for Atlanta.

“I think we’ll work really well together,” Young said. “This is a rebuilding team, and we’re going to try some things. Some are going to work, some aren’t, so we’re just going to work together and do whatever we can to turn this franchise around.”
