Posts about Trae Young
NBA execs said they'd rather build around Evan Mobley than Zion Williamson/Anthony Edward/Lamelo Ball/Trae Young. Is Evan Mobley starting to get a bit overrated?
From the recent exec poll, Mobley came in fourth. Ahead of guys like Zion, Ant, Lamelo, Trae. Three of those guys are All Stars and the one isn't (Ant) is clearly on that level. You might think it's an age thing, but no. Lamelo and Ant are actually YOUNGER than Mobley.
And it's not just the exec poll, i've seen it in many places. Personally, if on similar levels I would always take the perimeter player over the defense first big man.
Trae Young, Atlanta Hawks point guard and teammate of noted instigator Dejounte Murray, has a theory on why Draymond Green served Jordan Poole with a Falcon punch during a recent heated Golden State Warriors practice.

[Trae Young] reacts to Bill Simmons apologizing for doing two podcasts about Kevin Durant trades without realising the rookie extensions rule and then proposing a KD-Trae trade which is also illegal for the same reason: “Dumb ass. 😂🤦🏽♂️”

[Fogg] Bill Simmons apologising for doing two pods about Kevin Durant trades without realising the rookie extensions rule made most of them illegal and then proposing a KD for Trae Young trade which is also illegal for the exact same reason 14 seconds later is absolutely incredible
Context: Designated Rookie Extension
You're only allowed to trade for one player that got a max rookie extension. The Nets already did so with Ben Simmons. Can't acquire another one.
