Lin will be entering his ninth season in the NBA next fall, and the Hawks mark the 6-foot-3 point guard’s sixth team. Lin averaged 14.5 points, 5.1 assists and 3.8 rebounds in 36 games for the Nets during the 2016-17 season while dealing with a lingering hamstring injury.

Lin averaged 11.7 points, 3.2 rebounds and three assists in 2015-16, his last complete season, with the Charlotte Hornets.
