That is not only the next step. This should be the first and only step. If the coach tells him, he does not agree with Collins, then I think he should either agree with coach and continue to play for the same coach, or demand a trade. Throwing Young and the coach under the bus to say that under team meeting, is not what a good teammate does. If he does not  agree with the coach strategy and style of play, and it is coaches decision to go with Young in that manner, he can leave the team and ask for a trade. But one can do that in much better style and respect for the team, instead of creating a bad situation for Hawks. This is what he has done now and hurts the franchise.

We need good teammates when we have some losses, and deal with issues better than what Collins did.

The whole thing is Collins not agreeing with coach strategy of him being less involved. Then he should talk to the coach directly, this is the only correct thing to do. Next best thing is to discuss with Trae directly and private about this issue. And the third and worst thing is to involve the entire franchise and media (of course it leaks out after such a meeting, so many hear that). This has hurt Trae, the coach, and everyone in the team and the fans now as well. Collins should have spoken to the coach and instead of hurting the franchise, asked for a trade without making a big thing about it.

From the Athletic article

"Some Hawks have agreed with Collins’ stance and believe when he’s featured more, the team plays much better. After Collins spoke up in the team’s film session, the message from the coaching staff was that the Hawks have to do a better job of making opposing teams work on defense because of the offensive weapons they now have, and settling on bad looks early in the shot clock is not a recipe for success."

So teammates are on the side of Collins and so is the coaching staff. I'm not sure why Collins is a bad teammate 

This happens in locker rooms. It doesn't seem like Collins was criticizing Young, he was criticizing his decisions
