The Atlanta Hawks may be considering trading Trae Young and keeping Dejounte Murray this offseason in a surprising potential move, as Young is viewed as a more coveted asset and could potentially yield greater returns in a trade.

By the Numbers
  • The Hawks are currently 10th in the East with a 24-29 record.
  • Young averaged 28.1 points, 11 assists, and 1.8 steals on 47% shooting from the floor and 44% from deep in the recent nine-game span.
State of Play
  • The Hawks have won six out of their last nine games, including victories over notable teams like the Lakers, Suns, and Warriors.
  • The San Antonio Spurs are reportedly interested in pursuing a trade for Young, seeking a point guard to feed Victor Wembanyama, who could complement Young's defensive deficiencies.
Bottom Line

The Atlanta Hawks are contemplating a potential trade of Trae Young, aiming to maximize their returns and potentially reshape their roster for future success, while also considering Dejounte Murray as a key piece for their future plans.
