Trae Young Shows Off New Look

The Atlanta Hawks seem to be stuck in purgatory three years after reaching the Eastern Conference Finals, and there have been many rumors that they could soon make major changes.

Guard Dejounte Murray, who has been discussed in trade rumors for months, was recently traded to the New Orleans Pelicans, and now people wonder if Trae Young, his former backcourt starting mate, could be shipped off next.

In the meantime, Young has grown out the rest of his facial hair — he’s now sporting a full beard.

Young, despite being a three-time All-Star, is a flawed player, and he has a career field-goal accuracy of just 43.6 percent while averaging 4.2 turnovers a game.

Many have criticized him for his shot selection and decision-making, and he’s also considered a defensive liability.

But Young is a major scoring threat who put up 25.7 points a game this past season while also dishing off 10.8 assists per game, and he can shoot his team into a victory in any given contest.

The Hawks failed to make the playoffs this season, and it appears they’ll be stuck in the middle — perhaps the worst place to be in any sport — unless they make major changes of some type.

Other than Young, they do not have a lot of very attractive trade assets, and therefore, it may be time for them to tear things down and start over again.

Young is just 25 years of age, so perhaps a number of teams would be seriously interested in his services and enrich the Hawks with several draft picks in return.
