The Atlanta Hawks are one of the youngest teams in the NBA. With the Hawks not about to participate in the Orlando “bubble”, head coach Lloyd Pierce talked about the development of the franchise’s young players.

The promising coach wants to help his players excel on and off the court, as he explained in an appearance on 92.9 The Game’s The Midday Show w/ Andy & Randy.

“Trae Young is an unbelievable player. Deandre Hunter is an unbelievable player,” he said. “They are going to be even better as the years start to come around and experience increases, I’m not worried about that. I do hope that I can contribute to them being unbelievable men, fathers, husbands eventually,” Pierce noted per Bleacher Report.
