Hawks great Dominique Wilkins calls Trae Young ‘remarkable,’ says he ‘hasn’t even reached his ceiling yet’

CBS Sports


Article Summary:

The Hawks upset the higher-seeded New York Knicks, followed by the East’s top-seeded Philadelphia 76ers, who couldn’t stop Trae Young from breaking free from averaging 29 points through the first two rounds of the postseason. Former Hawks legend and Hall of Famer Dominique Wilkins even went so far as to say that Young hasn’t come close to reaching his full potential. Young did what he could do with the talent around him, but once Atlanta added players like Bogdan Bogdanovic, Danilo Gallinari along with the natural progression of Kevin Huerter and De’Andre Hunter, it allowed Young to show a more complete side of his game. Wilkins is right – not only has Young not reached his ceiling, but now that the Hawks have tasted success it’ll only motivate him and the franchise even more to get better right now.
