NBA insider gives huge update on Atlanta Hawks trading Trae Young this summer

A top NBA insider has a major update on the situation between the Atlanta Hawks and star Trae Young, and if there is any real chance the team could actually trade him this summer.

The Atlanta Hawks are in the midst of notable change inside the organization. During a frustrating season where the team took another step back in play despite the addition of talented guard Dejounte Murray, the organization made major changes in the front office and also decided to dismiss head coach Nate McMillan with a few months left in their campaign.

To replace him, the Atlanta Hawks hired former Utah Jazz head coach Quin Snyder, who is expected to make changes to the coaching staff in a continued evolution of the team’s culture and style of play for next season. With so much change occurring many have speculated that the roster could be overhauled as well and that top star Trae Young could be moved.

Before the season ended, there were reports that the front office was given the go-ahead to consider potential trade for their top star. With the official start of the offseason just weeks away, many Atlanta Hawks fans are wondering if there have been any developments on the trade front.

On Tuesday, Turner Sports and The Athletic NBA insider Chris Haynes gave an update on the situation when speaking about potential summer point guard targets for the Los Angeles Lakers. A team that has had rumored interest in Young.

“I think there’s more smoke with Kyrie [Irving] than Trae Young right now. For what I’ve heard, there’s nothing brewing with Trae Young and the Hawks. Like, there hasn’t been any meeting or anything like that to request a trade. There’s nothing like that has happened with Trae, nothing.”

It will be interesting to see if the market for Young changes as teams near the top of the NBA Draft possibly reach out to the Atlanta Hawks about their star guard.
