Speculation surrounding Trae Young’s potential move to the Los Angeles Lakers has been tempered following a significant agency change.

Young, who has been linked with a trade to the Lakers, recently parted ways with Klutch Sports, a move that could impact his future in Los Angeles.

The Atlanta Hawks are reportedly considering trading either Young or Dejounte Murray during the offseason, with indications pointing towards Young as the more probable candidate.

Young’s departure from Klutch Sports, known for representing several Lakers stars like LeBron James and Anthony Davis, has raised doubts about the likelihood of him joining the purple and gold.

According to insights from Jovan Buha of The Athletic, Young’s switch of representation to CAA has led some league insiders to believe that the odds of him landing in Los Angeles have diminished.
