Know Your Hawks: Trae Young

Trae Young burst onto the scene last season, finishing as runner-up for Rookie of the Year, which went to Luka Doncic. His 8.1 assists per game (to go with 19.1 points and 3.7 rebounds) ranked fourth overall in the league (behind Russell Westbrook, Kyle Lowry and Chris Paul).

In this Q&A, the fifth installment in the Know Your Hawks series, Young breaks down the strengths and challenges that come with having such a young roster and explains how big a leap he wants the Hawks to take from last season to this one.
