Once again, Jeremy Lin is headed to a new city.

The Atlanta Hawks traded Portland's 2020 second-round pick and former draft-and-stash selection Isaia Cordinier to the Brooklyn Nets late Thursday night in exchange for the 29-year-old point guard, a 2025 second-round pick and the rights to swap second-round picks in 2023.

After being released in December 2011 by Golden State, Lin was claimed by the Knicks for a reserve role and pondered ending his National Basketball Association career if released.

During a partially healthy season in Brooklyn during the 2016-17 season, Lin averaged 14.5 points and 5.1 assists over 36 games.

Lin has averaged 12.0 points, 4.5 assists, 2.9 rebounds and 1.2 steals a game over 406 National Basketball Association appearances.
