Report: Trae Young could request trade from Hawks

According to Chris Haynes of Bleacher Report, rival executives believe Atlanta Hawks star point guard could be the next player on a rookie max extension to request a trade if the situation does not improve with the team.

The 24-year-old Young is under contract through the 2026-27 season but can opt out following the 2025-26 season.

Just two years ago, Young led Atlanta to the Eastern Conference Finals but the team has not been able to duplicate the successful chemistry. Before this season, the team made a big acquistion in adding star guard Dejounte Murray but the team has been underperforming with a 16-16 record.

While Young is averaging 27.6 points and 9.8 assists, he has struggled shooting, connecting on only 41.1% of his shots and 30.7% from three-point range.

On Wednesday, the Hawks made a major change to its front office with team president Travis Schlenk stepping aside to take on a senior advisory role with General Manager Landry Fields taking over as the head of basketball operation. Haynes states that Young and Fields meet regularly and the two have a “great relationship.”
