Lin has a year and $12.5 million left on the contract he signed two summers ago. He ruptured the patella tendon in his right knee during the Nets' opener last season, and while he was out Spencer Dinwiddie stepped in and became one of the NBA's most improved players.
Lin joins rookie point guard Trae Young and veteran Dennis Schroder in a crowded back court with the Hawks. He produced 2.8 points in 7.4 minutes per game. Faried is owed $13.76 million this season, and Arthur is set to earn $7.46 million. A hamstring injury limited him to 36 games in the 2016-17 season.
Whitehead, 23, averaged 6.3 points and 1.6 rebounds in 16 games off the Brooklyn bench last season.
