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

Lin told the Nets website earlier this week that he has yet to participate in full-contact drills as he rehabs the injury. As part of the deal, the two teams will also exchange future second-round picks.

Four men can also be seen joining the woman in the attack, according to video obtained by one of the witnesses. Without warning, the woman hit him with a concrete block, he said, and enlisted a group of men to kick him.

Lin joins rookie point guard Trae Young and veteran Dennis Schroder in a crowded back court with the Hawks. The Hawks now add Lin, who has one year remaining on his contract, to that guard mix.

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

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. In 67 games last season, Schroder averaged a career-best 19.4 points per game, in addition to 6.2 assists and 3.1 rebounds.
