The NBA trade deadline is less than one month away andA the Atlanta Hawks are expected to be active. That, of course, doesna€™t mean that Travis Schlenk and companyA willA pull the trigger on a deal of any kind but, over the next few weeks, it is safe to assume that the Hawks will be linked with trade rumblings.

On Friday, one such report emerged fromA Sean Deveney of Sporting News, and he indicates that veteran point guard Jeremy Lin is drawing interest in the market. The Portland Trail Blazers, in search of an upgrade to their depth, could come calling.

Portland, too, would be willing to part with its first-rounder to add depth to a roster that badly needs help in the backcourt and on the wing. The Trail Blazers could be a player for (Terrence) Ross or (Jonathon) Simmons, too. But sources tell SN that they have expressed interest in another player expected to be made available for a first-round pick: Atlanta point guard Jeremy Lin.

When the Hawks traded for Lin last summer, the hope was that he could be a veteran presence for the first part of the season for young point guard Trae Young, then could be swapped for a rebuilding asset to help the woebegone Hawksa€™ future. A first-rounder would do the trick.

As noted here, Lin has provided a strong veteran presence in Atlanta and, on the floor, his pick-and-roll operation and general offensive punch have been quite valuable. With that said, he is operating on an expiring contract for more than $13.7 million and that can complicate matters under the realization that opposing teams must match salary.
