David Aldridge: Meanwhile, told the Hawks plan to keep @Jeremy Lin, acquired from BKN tonight (@Adrian Wojnarowski first). With @Trae Young in the mix as well, you’d have to think Atlanta is in range to deal incumbent point @Dennis Schroeder, around whom trade rumors have been flying for weeks.
More Rumors in this Storyline
Adrian Wojnarowski: In the Jeremy Lin deal, Atlanta sends the Nets the rights to 2016 second-round pick Isaia Cordinier (you’ll probably never see him). Atlanta gets a 2025 second-round pick and the right to swap picks with Nets in 2023.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Brooklyn has traded Jeremy Lin to the Hawks, league sources tell ESPN.
Brian Lewis: Jeremy Lin had said if #Nets were planning to trade him they’d tell him. I asked him if he’d gotten that call yet. “No, I didn’t. My agent called me just to clarify. But no, I don’t think there’s any. I don’t think that has any truth to it.” @Jeremy Lin
Brian Lewis: #Nets GM Sean Marks on Jeremy Lin: “You look at the team now, that’s what we’ve got and that’s what we’re planning on. We’re planning on going into the season with that team.” @jlin7
Now attention can largely turn to trades and buyouts, as in do they deal Jeremy Lin and how much do they get back from Howard? Multiple league sources told The Post they had heard Lin could be dealt this offseason.
Eagle told Brian Egan and Michael Smeltz that the he thinks that there are “very few untouchables” (21:03) on the Nets roster, notably rookies Caris LeVert and Isaiah Whitehead and Jeremy Lin, who he believes despite his injury is “in for the long haul.” (21:50). LeVert and Whitehead, he added, are particularly important for Sean Marks and Trajon Langdon because general managers know they “build your reputation in the draft” and the new guys in the front office did very well in 2016.
Nets play-by-play announcer Ian Eagle told Brian Egan and Michael Smeltz that the he thinks that there are “very few untouchables” on the Nets roster, notably rookies Caris LeVert and Isaiah Whitehead and Jeremy Lin, who he believes despite his injury is “in for the long haul.”

Scott Agness: Nate McMillan after a game with 35 assists and just nine turnovers: “This is the type of basketball we’re capable of playing. We just have to be consistent. This is what I’ve been talking about.”
