Ayo Dosunmu has done a number on Trae Young this season, while Andre Drummond has played some of his best basketball of the year against Atlanta. Both could miss Wednesday with injuries.

Looks like the Hawks will be losers of six straight coming into this play-in game … Bulls should be 10-point favorites against a team that I am officially putting on bum-ass team alert. They have no chance with Trae Young back in the lineup. – 2:46 PM

Trae Young will finish out the 3Q with the bench – 2:46 PM

Hawks had some serious hustle on what ended up as a kick ball. The Hawks get the ball back and Trae Young returns to the game and draws a foul off Aaron Nesmith, his 3rd – 1:55 PM

A little bit of a different rotation pattern. Dejounte Murray was the first to go to the bench instead of Trae Young. Usually Young would a breather halfway through the first and Murray plays til about 3:00 remain in the quarter – 1:30 PM

I’m listening to nothing but diss records before the game tomorrow🎶🔥🔥 – 10:19 PM

Could Zach LaVine be traded for Trae Young this summer? Hawks-Bulls play-in game could be very interesting, but not for the obvious reasons. And what say you, “Spida” Mitchell?

More on this storyline

The Spurs are unique because they have a clear franchise player in Wembanyama. Still, other rebuilding teams such as the Charlotte Hornets and Washington Wizards probably won’t take on that kind of investment, even though Young will turn 26 in September. The wild card might be the Detroit Pistons, who “Need to do something,” per multiple competing executives. Young is not the kind of point guard Detroit head coach Monty Williams tends to prefer, but conflict can sometimes lead to strange results. -via Bleacher Report / April 16, 2024
If the Hawks decide Young is the guard to move, the Lakers are believed to be one of the teams with serious interest. Whether he’s the right fit is debatable (he doesn’t play well off the ball, and LeBron James usually has it in his hands to end games), but the Lakers have been known to chase players that may or may not fit (Russell Westbrook). As James’ career winds down, L.A. would try to build around the Davis/Young pairing, with Davis offsetting what Young doesn’t do well on defense. This also assumes James and the Lakers recommit this summer. -via Bleacher Report / April 16, 2024
