For weeks now, the rumor sending Trae Young to the Spurs this summer has continued to gain momentum within the NBA community.

However, another franchise than San Antonio could try to attract the leader of the Hawks into their nets.

Despite his team’s somewhat disappointing season, he remains in the race to participate with them in the playoffs.

Trae Young has not yet given up on his title goal, even if the Hawks (36-46) are undoubtedly the least serious contender in the East with their 10th place.

For that, they will already have to win this Wednesday in Chicago, otherwise they will have to make big changes in the offseason.

Indeed, in the event of elimination during the Play-In Tournament, the leaders of Atlanta should liven up the transfer market and part ways with one of their stars.

In addition to Dejounte Murray, Trae Young could pack his bags and discover a new environment for the first time.

This scenario has even gained credibility in recent hours , while Spurs fans are already pleading for his arrival.

A surprising exit door to the East mentioned for Trae Young

Announced as possibly leaving this summer for weeks, Young is very often sent to the San Antonio side in rumors.

It must be said that his repeated viral moves concerning Victor Wembanyama have not gone unnoticed on the web.

However, other teams should be interested in his services if he becomes available, including the Pistons according to Eric Pincus of Bleacher Report :

The surprise team in this matter could be the Detroit Pistons, who “need to do something” according to multiple rival executives.

Young isn’t the kind of leader that Detroit coach Monty Williams tends to prefer, but that kind of conflict can sometimes lead to strange results.

Once again dead last in the Eastern Conference, the Pistons (14-68) must indeed accelerate their reconstruction this summer.

This could therefore involve a major movement on the market, as they benefit from a certain margin regarding the salary cap.

It remains to be seen whether the assets they have have enough to satisfy the Hawks in possible negotiations. Regardless, the franchise seems determined to make a change:

After a disappointing 14-58 season, the Detroit Pistons have decided to hire a new president of basketball operations and will begin their search process this week, according to sources from The Athletic and Stadium.

Destined to shake up their team in order to leave the depths of the Eastern Conference rankings, the Pistons could position themselves in the Trae Young file.

The Spurs will therefore have to be more convincing if they wish to recruit him.
