Trae Young is a player who gets polarizing reactions from NBA fans. Although he is a very good point guard, some feel like he is always seeking fouls. Moreover, his shooting can sometimes be inconsistent. However, without him, the Atlanta Hawks are nothing. They would never have made the playoffs this season without him on the roster. He did his absolute best against the Boston Celtics, although it didn't work out as they were promptly eliminated. Having said that, Young continues to have a bright future ahead.
Interestingly, Trae Young was part of numerous trade rumors throughout the season. There was this belief that he wasn't happy to be in Atlanta anymore. However, he ended up staying with the team, much to the delight of fans. Now, the season is coming to an end which means free agency is almost here. Subsequently, we are getting a bunch of new rumors, involving the Los Angeles Lakers. This has made things even more interesting ahead of the July movement window.

Trae Young To L.A.?
Jovan Buha of The Athletic is the one reporting on these rumors. As he explained, the Lakers are thinking of making a trade that would make Trae Young their point guard. "For what it's worth, Kyrie Irving and Trae Young, two All-Star-level point guards, were both sitting courtside in Los Angeles for the second time this postseason," Buha wrote. "Young, like James and Davis, is a Klutch client. The Lakers have had internal discussions about what a hypothetical trade offer for Young could look like this summer, according to multiple league sources not authorized to speak publicly."
Of course, the Lakers are always involved in these types of rumors. That is how every single offseason plays out. Although, this will definitely persuade Lakers fans to be excited about next season. Let us know what you think of a potential Trae Young trade, in the comments section below.
