Guard Jeremy Lin is on the move again this offseason and upon learning he has been traded, he took some time out to share some words of wisdom with his fans.
After finding out that he has been traded by the Brooklyn Nets to the Atlanta Hawks, Lin took to Instagram to post a picture of himself wearing his new team’s uniform.
Lin included a Bible verse from Proverbs 16: 3 along with the picture which reads, “Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.”
Lin also went to Twitter and urged fans to “Find joy in your journey.”
The soon-to-be 30-year-old guard has leaned on his faith to provide him with guidance throughout his NBA career. He even said back in 2014 that he declined many endorsement offers because he feels that his “purpose” is to play basketball “for the glory of God,” the Chicago Tribune reported.
He added, “The stuff off the court is great and it’s fun, but it’s definitely secondary to my primary job.”
Lin is going to the Hawks along with a 2025 second round selection. The Nets also gave the Hawks the right to swap second round picks in 2023, ESPN reported.
In exchange for Lin and the second round selections, the Nets are getting a 2020 second round pick that is coming via the Portland Trail Blazers. The Hawks are also sending the Nets the rights to 2016 second round draft choice Isaia Cordinier.
