Why the Atlanta Hawks say yes to the Utah Jazz trade.

Forst and foremost it gives the Hawks another star to take the pressure off Trae Young. This is going to be crucial for the Hawks if they want to have another deep run in the playoffs. Star power is real currency in the NBA and Mitchell has been one of the brightest in the West for a while.

He can start taking pressure off Young with ball handling and scoring which is going to be crucial for how the Hawks are defended. However, it also means that the Hawks are able to start using Young off-ball more which is something the Hawks may want to explore.

While it will also hurt to see the back of Collins who has been such a valued member of the organisation, the payoff is potentially huge, Getting O’Neale also helps the Hawks defensive capabilities and he is an underrated 3-point shooter.

Next. Do not sleep on Trae Young and the Atlanta Hawks. dark

This trade will make the Hawks a contender for years to come as Mitchell still has four years left on his contract. This is the same amount of time that Collins has left on his deal which keeps the window open while the Hawks are still young.
