Hawks’ Trae Young hints of potential sneaker deal

Trae Young, Hawks

Is Trae Young about to get a signature shoe? The Atlanta Hawks guard may have hinted at a potential sneaker deal.

Young’s recent tweet may be a strong clue that he’s about to lock in a shoe deal. We can only hunch at this point. But the emojis Young included in the tweet somehow give it away.

As always, this is still a matter of wait and see. But for those who have been watching Young, a signature shoe even this early in his career is not a surprise.

After all, the fifth overall pick of the 2018 NBA Draft has turned out as one of the best players in his batch. Earlier on, all eyes were on Luka Doncic. But as the season progressed, fans and critics saw that something special was also brewing up in Atlanta. The Hawks even became the laughing stock for a while when they agreed to swap Doncic for Young. But here we are two years later: both Young and Doncic two of the most exciting young stars in the NBA.

Back in his college days in Oklahoma, Young was seen as the second coming of Stephen Curry. It was primarily because of his seemingly limitless range. But when Young stepped into the big leagues, analysts soon discovered that he was a whole different monster of a player. Yes, he still possesses that Curry-like range. But he also had the passing and playmaking ability of a Jason Kidd or Steve Nash. Now, Young has stripped off all the comparisons and has evolved into a player of his own making.
