Hawks GM Landry Fields keeps Trae Young's future with team uncertain

In recent years, the Atlanta Hawks have found themselves in a sort of basketball limboŚnot exactly struggling, but not making significant progress either. Now, there's speculation swirling around the potential trade of their star guard, Trae Young, who once propelled them to the Eastern Conference finals. While Young has expressed his desire to stay in Atlanta, his emphasis on winning raises questions about his future with the team.

General Manager Landry Fields hasn't shed much light on Young's fate. There's a belief that the Hawks might seek to trade Young while retaining Dejounte Murray, another key player. However, trade rumors don't always materialize, as evidenced by Murray's near departure during the season.

''Trae is the ultimate competitor, he really is,'' Fields said, via Lauren Williams of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. ''Without a doubt, I know he wants to win. And you know, it never comes down to just one guy. Because as great as Trae is, he is a fantastic basketball player All-Star-caliber player. He knows and we know that it's going to take more than one. So we'll look at this roster and continuously build out because we all want the same thing at the end of the day. We want to win.''

As for Young, the uncertainty persists. Reports suggest that the San Antonio Spurs view Young as incompatible with Victor Wembanyama and might prefer Murray instead. This uncertainty underscores the unpredictable nature of the NBA offseason, leaving Young's future with the Hawks up in the air. Whether they part ways or not, one thing's for sureŚit's shaping up to be another intriguing offseason for Atlanta.
