Tony Ressler refutes rumor of Hawks ownership push for Trae Young

Tony Ressler refutes rumor of Hawks ownership push for Trae Young

A bit of clarity. Trae Young enjoyed a phenomenal performance on Sunday evening, leading the Atlanta Hawks to a blowout victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Though it is important to note that there will be growing pains along the way, the rookie guard has looked the part of a potential centerpiece for the franchise and, as a result, the draft-day decision to part ways with the No. 3 pick (and a chance at Luka Doncic) in pursuit of Young (and a future draft asset from the Dallas Mavericks) is seen with more optimism. With that as the backdrop, Hawks owner Tony Ressler sat down with Jeff...

Trae Young explodes as Hawks down Cavaliers, 133-111

That was fun. On the heels of two lopsided defeats, optimism was fading (least in some corners) with regard to the Atlanta Hawks. Then, Sunday night arrived and, after 48 minutes, the Trae Young hype train was speeding out of control and the Hawks were no longer winless, after a 133-111 bludgeoning of the Cleveland Cavaliers. The early going was not kind to Atlanta and the ugliness polluted both ends of the floor. The Cavaliers took what appeared to be a commanding 22-7 lead in the opening minutes and, in general, Atlanta’s defense was lacking in allowing the Cavs to shoot 58 percent in...

High scoring affair goes in Grizzlies favor as Hawks drop to 0-2

Atlanta had a strong fourth quarter, but it ended up being too little, too late. The Atlanta Hawks fell to 0-2 on a Friday evening, succumbing to the Memphis Grizzlies by a final score of 124-113. “Uncle” Vince Carter started off the night on the right foot for the Hawks with this sick sidestep three pointer, but after that things went downhill quickly for Atlanta. Too smooth. pic.twitter.com/LCDNDMfPAW— Atlanta Hawks (@ATLHawks) October 20, 2018 Several minutes later in the first quarter, as the Hawks were already in a hole, Trae Young gave fans something to smile about with...
