Trae Young insists an argument he had with John Collins during a film season, which was reported by The Athletic, was overblown and not atypical.
Collins criticized Young for mismanaging the clock on offense and questioned his early shot-clock attempts.
“Of course if there’s anything out there publicly, I always go directly to [that person],” Young relayed to Yahoo Sports. “As for the John [Collins] incident, me and him talked about it as soon as it got out the next day and we were both confused. It just got out and it was over a regular film session. So there’s no beef or anything in there to begin with. There hasn’t been any locker room issues on my side. Anything that people were saying about locker room issues, there hasn’t been one. It’s all about our team and how we’ve been trying to get better in film sessions.”
Collins will be a restricted free agent this offseason.
