Trae Young talks about his exchange with Nate McMillan

Hawks’ star Trae Young did not appreciate the media asking about the reported exchange with the head coach Nate McMillan.

“It was just a situation. We’re all grown men here and sometimes we don’t always agree,” the two-time NBA All-Star said. “It’s just unfortunate that private situations and private conversations get out to the public, but I guess that’s what the world we live in now. I’ll just focus on basketball and focus on helping my team win and that’s what I got to be focusing on.”

When asked directly why he missed the game on Friday, Young appeared to be a little bit annoyed. Again, proceeded by saying that it was a private matter.

“It’s hard people who don’t know the full situation to understand it,” he said. “Like I said, it’s a private matter again. It made public which is unfortunate and if it stayed private, it probably wouldn’t have been as big of a deal.”

This season Young is averaging 27.8 points, 2.9 rebounds and 9.6 assists in 35.5 minutes per game for Atlanta.
