Video: Hawks’ Trae Young nutmegs Will Barton for the baseline jumper and stares down Nuggets bench


Trae Young of the Atlanta Hawks is one of the most exciting and entertaining young players in the NBA, and he produces highlights with relative ease on (seemingly) every play he makes.

One such play occurred on Tuesday night against the Denver Nuggets, as he completely bamboozled Will Barton by nutmegging him, hitting a tough jumper, and then staring down the Nuggets bench in disdain.

Certainly, that was an amazing sequence and with amazing passing vision, extended range on his three-point shot and a nifty dribble package, Young’s got it all when it comes to highlight-creation.

So far in the young season, Ice Trae is one of only four players in the NBA that’s averaging over 24 points per game and 8 assists per game per Basketball Reference. The other three? LeBron James, Luka Doncic and James Harden. Pretty good company for the Hawks’ second-year player.

Expect plenty more highlights and gaudy stat lines from the 21-year-old as his career progresses.
