Trae Young agreed to a five-year $207 million designated rookie maximum extension with the Atlanta Hawks.
Coming off a season where he led a magical run with Atlanta to the Eastern Conference Finals, losing to the eventual NBA champions in the Milwaukee Bucks, Young got his pay day. He will look to pick up where he left off this upcoming season after averaging just under 30 points per game in the playoffs run.
Trae Young has been ruled out for game five of the Eastern Conference finals between Atlanta and Milwaukee on Thursday.
It will be a battle between the Hawks and Bucks without both Young and Giannis Antetokounmpo. Young will continue to rehab with hopes of playing in the Eastern Conference Finals game six on Saturday in Atlanta.
