This was a great gesture by Trae Young. The Hawks certainly have a great player in their building, both on and off the basketball court.
Young was one of the athletes who helped establish the voting rights advocacy group “More Than A Vote” with Los Angeles Lakers superstar small forward LeBron James. The Hawks All-Star continues to use his immense platform to instill change in America.
During the 2019-20 NBA season, Young averaged 29.6 points, 4.3 rebounds and 9.3 assists per game for the Hawks while shooting 43.7 percent from the field, 36.1 percent from beyond the arc and 86.0 percent from the free-throw line.
Atlanta, though, finished the campaign with the second-worst record in the Eastern Conference before games were suspended in March due to COVID-19.
Moving forward, the Hawks must surround Young and big man John Collins with more talent if the franchise wants to make the playoffs. Basketball fans around the world are itching to see Young in the postseason since he’s one of the most exciting players in the league with the ball in his hands.
In 141 NBA games, Young has put up averages of 23.6 points, 3.9 boards and 8.6 assists.
