The Utah Jazz has consistently come up short in the playoffs since Rudy Gobert has emerged as a Defensive Player of the Year level talent. Could the Atlanta Hawks be a logical trade partner to pair with Trae Young and help Utah to shake things up and build around Donovan Mitchell?

The Hawks have experienced difficulty achieving much success in the win column as of late. Coming off a season featuring a 20-47 record, Atlanta may need to make some real changes to turn things around.

Here is a trade that would send Rudy Gobert to the Atlanta Hawks to pair him up with Trae Young.
