Despite not making any move, the Atlanta Hawks
were one of the main protagonists for this season's trade deadline. Rumors around transferring Dejounte Murray
were all over the place since December. However, the name that now is starting to emerge in the newest speculations involve the other Hawks' superstar, Trae Young
While some of these rumors may lack validity, speculation has recently surfaced about the possibility of Trae Young being traded in the upcoming offseason. While this could be considered more buzz than a substantiated rumor, when a prominent NBA
insider mentions this possibility, it is worthy of discussion.
Veteran NBA journalist Marc Stein has floated the idea that the Hawks could opt not to trade Dejounte Murray and instead pursue a trade involving Young, which would be a surprising move. According to Stein, the decision to keep Murray led some front offices to believe that the Hawks could be considering a more drastic reset, especially if the current season does not end in a satisfactory manner for the team.
While it is important to take these rumors with caution, the Hawks are focused on success on the court right now. With Trae Young leading the team, the Hawks are looking to improve their position in the Eastern Conference standings and prepare for the NBA playoffs. Despite the media attention surrounding these rumors, it is important to remember that, for now, they are just that: rumors.
