Jeremy Lin is on the move again. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the trade had not been announced.

Lin's time with the Nets was plagued by injury. ESPN first reported the deal, saying the Nets and Hawks would swap future second-round picks.

The Brooklyn Nets traded the oft-traveled point guard to the Atlanta Hawks, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Thursday night.

Lin has a year and $12.5 million left on the contract he signed two summers ago.

As for the Nets, the Nets backcourt will now be mostly handled by Spencer Dinwiddie, D'Angelo Russell, and Caris LeVert. He produced 2.8 points in 7.4 minutes per game.

Lin will be entering his ninth season in the National Basketball Association next fall, and the Hawks mark the 6-foot-3 point guard's sixth team.

Meanwhile, the Hawks are adding another fun point guard to a backcourt that just drafted Trae Young and Kevin Huerter. The NBA's first American-born player of Chinese or Taiwanese descent has also played for Golden State, Houston, the Lakers and Charlotte. Denver also got rid of $21 million in salary with the deal, with the bulk of that coming from the $13.8 million Faried is owed next season. During the 2016-17 campaign, Lin averaged 14.5 points and 5.1 assists for the Nets.
