This Hawks-Rockets trade forms a Trae Young, James Harden superstar duo

The Houston Rockets have begun the 2020-21 NBA season with James Harden on the roster and the controversy surrounding his trade request has toned down significantly. Regardless, the Rockets still should consider monitoring potential trades and the Atlanta Hawks could offer an intriguing one.

It has been a strong start to the NBA season for the Hawks. They appear to be a legitimate threat to make the playoffs after making the most of free agency to add established talent in their rotation. Now, Trae Young has plenty of help to lead this ascending team to more wins.

There’s nothing that leads to winning in the NBA quite like star power. Especially when dynamic talents can actually mesh well together. On the surface, there is a lot of ball dominance between Harden and Young— creating some cause for potential overlap when evaluating fit.

On the contrary, there is reason to believe that Harden could fit well alongside Young since they both are effective jump shooters. It would simply open up more opportunity for both players to attack within the flow of the game— making the offense more efficient overall.

Let’s take a look at a trade package that would send James Harden from the Houston Rockets to the Atlanta Hawks.
