Trae Young on Jeremy Lin: ‘I Think We’ll Work Really Well Together’

Young told Michael Scotto of The Athletic he thinks the pair will “work really well together” and that he hopes to turn the rebuilding Hawks around.
“From what I’ve heard, he’s going to be a great mentor for me,” Young said of Lin. “We’ve been talking. He’s a good dude. He’s been through the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. He’s seen it all, so I’m looking forward to picking his brain.”
The Hawks traded the rights to Euro star Luka Doncic to the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for Young’s draft rights and a future first-round pick on draft night. That trade, along with his collegiate stardom at Oklahoma, will put perhaps the biggest spotlight among rookies on Young heading into next season.
