Brook­lyn deals Lin to Hawks

Boston Herald - - SCOREBOARD -

Jeremy Lin’s in­jury­plagued stint in Brook­lyn is over. The Nets have agreed to trade Lin to At­lanta, the Hawks an­nounced yes­ter­day.

The move helps clear up the Nets’ log­jam at point guard and sends Lin to an­other team that is also pretty crowded at the po­si­tion. The Hawks an­nounced they also ac­quired a 2025 sec­ond-round pick and the right to swap sec­ond-round picks in 2023 with the Nets, who ac­quired the draft rights to shoot­ing guard Isaia Cor­dinier and a pro­tected 2020 sec­ond-round pick.

The Hawks will be the sev­enth team for Lin, the un­drafted for­mer Har­vard star who broke out with the Knicks dur­ing his run of Lin­san­ity in Fe­bru­ary 2012. The NBA’s first Amer­i­can-born player of Chi­nese or Tai­wanese de­scent has also played for Golden State, Hous­ton, the Lak­ers and Char­lotte.

Bulls, Parker close

The Chicago Bulls are on the verge of sign­ing Bucks for­ward Jabari Parker, ac­cord­ing to two sources.

Parker, the No.2 pick in the 2014 NBA draft, has av­er­aged 15.3 points and 5.5 re­bounds over four sea­sons.

The Bucks had un­til mid­night to re­scind their qual­i­fy­ing of­fer, which would make Parker an un­re­stricted free agent. The Bulls don’t yet know if they’re sign­ing Parker to a deal as an un­re­stricted free agent or to an of­fer sheet as a restricted free agent, which the Bucks could match. Ei­ther way, it’s ex­pected to be a short-term deal, a source said.

Surgery for Ball

Lak­ers guard Lonzo Ball is sched­uled to un­dergo arthro­scopic surgery Tues­day on his left knee.

The team said it will pro­vide an up­date on Ball’s con­di­tion af­ter the surgery. He has a torn menis­cus.

Ball was cho­sen by the Lak­ers with the sec­ond over­all pick in last year’s draft.
