Reports suggest that the Denver Nuggets agreed to trade forwards Kenneth Faried and Darrell Arthur, a 2019 protected first-round pick and a 2020 second-round pick to the Brooklyn Nets.

Veteran guard Jeremy Lin, who played only one game last season because of a ruptured patellar tendon, has been traded by the Nets to the Atlanta Hawks, reportedly.
