ATLANTA - The Atlanta Hawks' Trae Young's season may be over, but he has a lot to celebrate with a major milestone.
Tuesday, Young was selected to the All-NBA team for the first time in his career.
The star point guard was selected to All-NBA third team, joining the likes of LeBron James, Chris Paul, Karl-Anthony Towns, and Pascal Siakam.
That honor comes with a nice paycheck. Young will earn an additional $35.4 million in his rookie scale contract for being named to the team.
He is the first Hawks player to be named to an All-NBA team since the 2010-11 season, when Al Horford was picked for the third team.
Young responded to the news by saying he was going to "represent the best I can."
This season, the 23-year-old became only the second player in NBA history to lead the league in total points and assists - with an average of 28.4 points and 9.7 assists in the regular season.
