The Brooklyn Nets have been active in the trade market this season and trading away point guard Jeremy Lin was one of their plans from the start of the summer, according to Anthony Puccio of Nets Daily.
After struggling to find a spot in the NBA, Lin landed with the New York Knicks and subsequently took the city by storm.
For now, the Hawks have Schroder, Lin and Young on their depth chart but it is believed last night's deal will lead to a Schroder trade before long.
The team was hoping to clear the logjam at the guard position, which already has D'Angelo Russell, Spencer Dinwiddie, Allen Crabbe, and Caris LeVert to split playing time.
Lin played just one game for the Nets in 2017-18 before rupturing the patella tendon in his right knee and missing the rest of the season.
Lin became an worldwide sensation during the 2011-2012 season.
Lin, headed to his seventh National Basketball Association team as he prepares to enter his ninth season, now joins a roster that includes two notable point guards, No. 5 overall pick Trae Young and veteran Dennis Schroder. The NBA's first American-born player of Chinese or Taiwanese descent has also played for Golden State, Houston, the Lakers and Charlotte. Both are entering the final years of their contract. During the 2016-17 campaign, Lin averaged 14.5 points and 5.1 assists for the Nets. Arthur, 30, averaged 2.8 points and 0.8 rebounds in 19 contests.
