Since he was selected with the fifth pick of the 2018 DraftEvery year Young has improved, and with him has the team. However, last season there was a setback in that advance, and by advancing to the postseason for the Play-In, they were eliminated in the first round by Miami Heat.
Despite this, Trae is still, along with Luka Doncic and Ja Morant, one of the point guards with the most future. He is compared to Damian Lillard Y Stephen Curry for his great long distance shot, but unlike the two of them, as a passer he is already one of the best.
With all that talent, and a figure like John Collins playing alongside him, there is still something missing and that is clear: The defense. Young is a very weak player on that side, with his physical build and all the energy he uses on offense. So the Hawks want to give him a “gift.”
