The Hawks haven’t played a single game yet, and there’s palpable anticipation looming around Atlanta. For the first time in his career, Trae Young will team up with an All-Star after the club acquired Dejounte Murray earlier this offseason. And the former Spur is already taking a page out of his teammate’s book and becoming Public Enemy No. 1 following an altercation with this year’s first overall pick Paolo Banchero at an NBA Pro-Am game.

And now we know when the Hawks will face the Magic for the first time. According to reports from Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports, Atlanta will host Orlando on Oct. 21.

The Magic aren’t going to be a good team, and they haven’t been relevant since Dwight Howard was in his prime. It’s kind of interesting, though. What would’ve been an otherwise low-key matchup will now be making headlines because of this beef. It’ll be awesome to see more scrappiness from a Hawks team that lacked some fire last season.
