Like other non-bubble teams, the Atlanta Hawks are contacting voluntary workouts ahead of the NBA offseason.

Trae Young talked to Chris Kirschner of The Athletic about the next season and what he wants to change in his game.

“I hate the narrative of just being a scorer, and my stats don’t mean anything. I don’t want that narrative where it’s like I’m all about stats because I’m not,” the Hawks’ All-Star said.

Young finished in the top five in both points and assists. He averaged 23.6 points, 8.6 assists and 3.9 rebounds to record his first All-Star appearance.
