I don’t know if anyone has played better basketball in their rookie season than he is or anyone else over the last couple of years,” Pierce said.”The stuff he is doing — facilitating, he has played in every single game and he has performed. He has been our go-to guy down the stretch. I just think there is a lot to be said about our growth as a team and how we’ve progressed and teams we’ve beat and how we’ve played as the season has gone on and he’s been a major part of that.”Young was selected by the Mavericks No. 5 overall out of the 2018 draft, but was then traded to Atlanta in exchange for the No. 3 pick and a 2019 first-round pick. Young is averaging 18.7 points and has had five games with at least 30 points and 10 assists.
