A quick peek at the rating for Trae Young of the Atlanta Hawks in the upcoming NBA 2K20 video game.

For Trae Young of the Atlanta Hawks, his rookie season was all about proving doubters wrong.

After trading away feted Slovenian wunderkind Luka Doncic on draft night, Hawks General Manger Travis Schlenk’s decision to seemingly choose Trae Young over the 19-year-old EuroLeague MVP was met with widespread jeers and derision.

With that atmosphere surrounding Ice Trae’s first season, expectations were high, and Young did not look ready for the NBA early on in Summer League and in his first month or so in the league. However, Trae continued to improve as the season went on – so much so that he was clearly the second-best rookie in his draft class last season (behind only Doncic).

While Luka ran away with the Rookie of the Year race – seemingly before it even began (odd how that works) – Young continued to hone his craft and played extremely well to end the season, even outplaying Doncic to end the season by a considerable margin.

Now, with the NBA 2K series coming out with a new edition soon, the rating for Trae Young has dropped ahead of his appearance in NBA 2K20. The man himself shared an image that showed his rating in the upcoming game:

As you can see, Trae was given a rating of 85, which puts him on par with star players such as Pascal Siakam, Tobias Harris, C.J. McCollum and Kevin Love.

Certainly, Trae Young’s generational passing is on that level, but that does seem quite high. Still, Trae does deserve that level of respect, as he is easily the best player on the Atlanta Hawks in terms of offensive production.

So far, Trae and his new teammate De’Andre Hunter are the only two players who have had their NBA 2K20 scores revealed, with rookie Hunter being given the fourth-highest rating for any rookie next season.
