Trae Young’s 3-word reaction after $207 million extension with Hawks

Trae Young, John Collins, Hawks

Make fun of his inexplicable hair all you want, but Trae Young is laughing his way to the bank.

The Atlanta Hawks superstar got paid big-time after agreeing to a five-year maximum deal worth $207 million. Insert a GIF of Young’s chilly celebration here.

After the huge development, Young took to Twitter to post a three-word reaction that should fire up Hawks fans even more, especially after their stirring run in the NBA Playoffs.

The 22-year-old Young is definitely moving places. He grew up right before our very eyes in the NBA Playoffs, leading an underdog Hawks crew all the way to the Eastern Conference Finals. He happily embraced the villain role, showing everyone that he’s stopping at nothing in his goal to become of the NBA’s super-elite guys.

According to ESPN insider Adrian Wojnarowski, the high-scoring Young will have an early termination option after the fourth season of his new contract.

With the one-time All-Star already locked, the Hawks can now fully shift their focus on free agent forward John Collins. Clearly, he’s the team’s second most important player after Young and his growth throughout the years has truly helped ATL become one of the better squads in the Eastern Conference.

Young and Collins are the keys to the Hawks’ success moving forward. Plus, with coach Nate McMillan handling them for a full season, they could go even further than their surprising campaign last season.

Maybe Trae Young could talk to John Collins and buy him a beer or two. Or 1784758.
