Miami is the favorite to be Young’s next team if he is traded from the Hawks, via sportsbetting.ag. The Heat’s +250 odds lead the pack while the Chicago Bulls (+300) and Dallas Mavericks (+400) sit at second and third respectively. The Los Angeles Clippers (+500) and Washington Wizards (+800) round out the top five.
Trae Young has seen his name come up in trade rumors recently. Mainly, that’s of his own doing. NBA executives believe Young could request a trade from the Hawks if Atlanta doesn’t make noise in the playoffs. The Hawks had a tumultous regular season that saw Nate McMillan get fired after a public beef with Young. At the very least, both sides don’t seem to be seeing eye-to-eye at the moment.
If Atlanta were to deal Young, the Heat are currently seen as the favorites to trade for him. Kyle Lowry is poised to be a free agent after the 2024-2025 season. Regardless, he had a bit of a drop off in 2022, averaging 11.2 points and 5.1 assists. Young would certainly give the Heat a bit more firepower at the point guard position.
Trae Young gave Miami a taste of what they could trade for when he dropped 25 points, eight rebounds and seven points in the play-in tournament win. If the Hawks actually make Young available for trade, the Heat will be at the front of the line.
