ATLANTA (AP) -- The Atlanta Hawks have exercised the 2020-21 contract options on three of the team's top young players -- forward John Collins and guards Trae Young and Kevin Huerter.
The team exercised the fourth-year option on Collins and third-year options on Young and Huerter.
Collins led the Hawks with his averages of 19.5 points and 9.8 rebounds last season. Young was an NBA All-Rookie First Team selection after averaging 19.1 points and 8.1 assists.
Huerter was a second team all-rookie pick after scoring 9.6 points per game.
