The Hawks executed a trade this past July in which they acquired point guard Jeremy Lin from the Nets. 

As part of the deal the Hawks also received a second-round draft pick in 2025 and the chance to get a better second-round pick in 2020, but Lin is the centerpiece. A centerpiece one Lyft driver didn’t even recognize. 

Lin has played 37 games over the past two seasons and will count about $14 million against the Hawks’ salary cap next year. 

A hefty price to pay for a guy that is barely recognized off the court.
