The Atlanta Hawks are expected to complete a contract extension with their face of the franchise, superstar guard Trae Young.

Young, 22, was selected by the Dallas Mavericks with the No. 5 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.

The Mavericks famously traded the point guard, along with draft compensation, to the Hawks for superstar Luka Doncic. The deal has worked out marvelously for both teams.

In fact, Doncic is expected to receive a massive contract extension as well.

Last season, Young showed the league why he’s one of the best point guards in the association. The youngster led the Hawks to the Eastern Conference Finals. Young and the Hawks and were two games away from advancing to the NBA Finals.

In his first playoffs, Young averaged 28.8 points, 9.5 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game. He shot 41.8 percent from the field and 31.3 percent from downtown.
