Trae Young Destroys NBA Stars In Open Gym Match

Trae Young Destroying NBA Stars

Currently, in the offseason of NBA, players are getting their workout in ready for the next season. Working out in the gym, practice shooting and even friendly scrimmages. An Instagram post from CBRICKLEY603 shows NBA players in an open scrimmage in a gym.

The friendly match shows several NBA players including CJ McCollum, Carmelo Anthony, Lance Stephenson, Enes Kanter and rookies Trae Young and Moe Bamba. What seems to be highlighted in the videos is rookie Young shooting the lights out and showing previews of what's to come this season. Getting comparisons to Steph Curry, there is a lot of pressure on Young, especially his shooting performances. The fan’s want consistency from him which didn’t show during the Summer League. However, in the video, Young is pulling up from the 3-point land with confidence, schooling stars such as CJ McCollum.

With Dennis Schröder now gone to Oklahoma City, it leaves plenty of room for Young to blossom in Atlanta without sharing minutes. The Hawks will still likely be a lottery team, but with the young core of Trae Young, John Collins and Taurean Prince, the future looks bright.

The 19-year-old was drafted 5th overall in the 2018 NBA draft by the Dallas Mavericks but was traded to the Atlanta Hawks along with a protected future first-round pick in exchange for the rights to the 3rd overall pick in Luka Dončić. Young averaged 27.4 points, 8.7 assists and 1.7 steals per game for Oklahoma.
