Trae Young Fined $20,000 For Inappropriate Language Toward Official

Feb 11, 2021 8:44 PM

Trae Young has been fined $20,000 for directing inappropriate language toward a game official.

The incident occurred following the Hawks’ 118-117 loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Feb. 10.   

The play that Young disputed was correctly ruled a no-call.  Under the playing rules, Dallas’ Willie Cauley-Stein was entitled to a normal step on a screen from behind, which he took, and which led to incidental and legal contact between Cauley-Stein and Young.
