25-under-25: Trae Young at No. 4



Article Summary:

After quieting critics by guiding his Atlanta Hawks to the Eastern Conference Finals, what does Trae Young have in store for an encore?

Trae Young might be the NBA’s next great villain.

During the postseason, Trae Young showed just what his ceiling could be for the Atlanta Hawks?

At 6-foot-1 and 180 pounds, Young has been one of the NBA’s worst defenders ever since he joined the league three years ago. Young went off for an outrageous 29.2 points and 9.8 assists per game in the Hawks’ first-round thrashing of the Knicks, and he averaged 29.0 points and 10.9 assists in their second-round victory over the Sixers.

With Young on the floor last season, the Hawks averaged a scorching 118.2 points per 100 possessions, nearly a full point ahead of the Brooklyn Nets’ league-leading mark.
