Jeremy Lin is headed to his fifth National Basketball Association team in the last five years.

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.

The Nets weren't done there, either.

The Nets also have D'Angelo Russell, the No. 2 pick in the 2015 draft, at the point after acquiring him from the Lakers.

Lin, who broke into the league with the 2010-11 Warriors where Schlenk was in Golden State's front office, suffered a season-ending ruptured patellar tendon in the Nets' opener a year ago. According to Wojnarowski, however, league sources said they expect the Hawks to now trade Schroder this offseason.

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

Now, Lin will have to find room in Atlanta, where point guard Dennis Schroder was the Hawks' leading scorer last season.

As for the other deal, the Nuggets freed up $21 million in salary and potentially save $43 million in payroll and luxury tax next season, Wojnarowski reported.
