The Atlanta Hawks have a budding backcourt dynamic brewing between point guard Trae Young and shooting guard Kevin Huerter.

Young, selected with the fifth overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, is poised to take on the long-range mantle after Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors. Who's his fellow Splash Brother then?

In comes the 21-year-old Huerter, the Hawks' 19th overall selection from last year's draft class, who surprised skeptics with a solid rookie season in 2018-19. Huerter averaged 9.7 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 2.9 assists per game in 75 appearances for Atlanta, shooting 41.9% from the field, and scorching from deep with 38.5% accuracy.

The University of Maryland product had this to say about Splash Bros. comparison with Young (via Alex Kennedy of Hoops Hype):

[Huerter]: Yeah, I have. [Curry and Klay Thompson are] definitely big comparisons, but I really think [general manager] Travis [Schenk] was just drafting with the way the NBA is kind of going right now. The Warriors laid out the blueprint: Floor spacing and three-point shooting is winning in the NBA right now. … That’s what he did in Golden State when he helped build that team. Now, in this year’s draft, he drafted two wings (De’Andre Hunter and Cam Reddish) and a big in Bruno [Fernando]. Again, these are guys who can do a lot of things, put the ball on the floor, play multiple positions, have length and make shots. I really think it’s a blueprint that a lot of the teams around the NBA are following, and we were just kind of the first pieces to that puzzle.

The Hawks were involved in several draft-night trades, most prominently moving up to take Virginia's De'Andre Hunter with the fourth overall pick after dealing with the New Orleans Pelicans. They would later take Duke's Cam Reddish in the lottery portion of the draft last June and appear building a strong team top to bottom that can compete in the Eastern Conference for years to come.

If all goes right for the Hawks, Huerter and Young could possibly rewrite history with the Warriors' Splash Bros.
