NBA 2018-19: Rookie of the Year Power Rankings Week 10
#4 Trae Young
Trae Young had one of his more consistent weeks in a while this time around as he jumps up a spot on the power rankings. He had 2 Double-Doubles in 3 games and finished the week averaging 15.6 Points and 8 Assists while shooting 46% from the field and 50% from deep.
The Hawks would probably like to see him keep up his efficiency from the field, as that has been Trae's biggest problem. Huerter's emergence as a solid scoring threat (especially on the perimeter) and not just as a flash in the pan has helped Young, who now doesn't have to shoulder the entire scoring burden with John Collins who is basically a rim-runner.
If Young can continue playing like the way he did this week, he might be able to break the duopoly at the top, but he has some ways to go for that. Coming up next for Trae and the Hawks are the Pistons, Timberwolves, Pacers, and Cavaliers.
