Trae Young reacts to getting hacked, sending out NSFW tweets

Hawks news: Trae Young reacts to getting hacked, sending out NSFW tweets

Atlanta Hawks point guard Trae Young’s Twitter account got hacked on Friday, and the hacker sent out some NSFW tweets.

Fortunately, the Hawks star has gotten control of his account again.

Trae Young isn’t the first and won’t be the last sports star to get his Twitter account hacked. To recall, Milwaukee Bucks superstar small forward Giannis Antetokounmpo’s Twitter profile was hacked earlier in the year.

Young and the Hawks have begun their in-market bubble. The former Oklahoma Sooner, who made his first All-Star team in 2019-20, told reporters he’s thrilled to be back with his teammates playing the game he loves.

The Hawks weren’t invited to Walt Disney World for the resumption of the 2019-20 season since they had the second-worst record in the Eastern Conference standings before games were suspended in March due to COVID-19.

Atlanta only racked up 20 wins.

Despite the team’s putrid season, though, Young was stellar for his part. He averaged 29.6 points, 4.3 rebounds and 9.3 assists per game while shooting 43.7 percent from the field, 36.1 percent from beyond the arc and 86.0 percent from the free-throw line.

For the Hawks to make the playoffs again, the front office must surround Young and big man John Collins with more talent. Atlanta not only has the sixth overall pick in the 2020 draft, but the franchise also has significant cap space to sign some impact players once the 2020 free agency period begins.

Since entering the NBA in 2018, Young has compiled averages of 23.6 points, 3.9 boards and 8.6 assists with the Hawks. His defense still needs a lot of improvement, but there is no question Young is a stud on offense.
