Hawks rookie Trae Young admits he’s been poor at communication

Atlanta Hawks rookie Trae Young feels like he could improve his overall communication on the court after Saturday’s loss to the Charlotte Hornets.

The Hawks struggled to slow down the Hornets right from the start, as Charlotte exploded for 46 points in the first quarter en route to a 129-120 victory.

Kemba Walker led the charge with 37 points and a season-high nine 3-pointers, which certainly wasn’t ideal for Young and the rest of the Hawks’ guards.

And after having issues on both sides of the court, Young understands that there are improvements that can be made to his game:

“Kemba was doing what he’s done all season,” said Young, according to the Associated Press. “I didn’t do a good job on him. I don’t think I did a good job of talking, getting everybody to be where they needed to be. I’ve got to be better at doing that on both sides of the ball.”

Young will obviously gain more experience each and every game, and while he will have his struggles, the potential is there for him to be an excellent NBA player.

The Hawks will return to the court on Saturday night to take on the Orlando Magic, who are coming off an impressive win against the Milwaukee Bucks.
