With the Atlanta Hawks currently down 3-1 in the 2023 NBA Playoffs to the Boston Celtics, their season looks like it’s on the verge of being over. If that’s the case, the future of Hawks guard Trae Young will soon be put even further under the microscope, with there already being rumors that Atlanta is considering moving on from the two-time All-Star.

There are many that believe Young isn’t the problem in Atlanta, it’s just that his supporting cast hasn’t been good enough over the years. Yet, this is the best roster Trae has ever had in his career, and the Hawks still struggle with the same problems year after year.

Poor off-ball movement, iffy ball-movement, an overreliance on hero ball, a problematic defense, and tension between Trae and the coaching staff.
