Trae Young wants LeBron James to come to Atlanta.
The Hawks rookie posted a message to James Wednesday on Twitter in an attempt to convince James to choose Atlanta in free agency.
While it’s unlikely James would choose to come to Atlanta, if the four-time MVP turns down his option on Friday, he will become a free agent ahead of the 2018-2019 season.
“What’s up LeBron!? Come to the A and let’s get these Rings Fam,” Young wrote.
Young was drafted by the Dallas Mavericks fifth-overall in Thursday’s NBA Draft, but was traded to Atlanta for a 2019 first-round draft pick and Luka Doncic, the third-overall pick.
In his freshman year at Oklahoma, Young shot 42.2 percent from the field and averaged 27.4 points, 3.9 rebounds, 8.7 assists and 1.7 steals.
