2014 NBA Draft Rumors: Will Sixers trade Thaddeus Young
- Updated: June 19, 2014
How badly do the Sixers want Wiggins or potentially Aaron Gordon of Arizona? Even more so, how valuable is Thaddeus Young to the re-building of the Sixers organization?
Young holds a high value around the league, mainly because he averaged 17.9 points and 6.0 rebounds last season. His ability to both play and defend multiple positions is attractive to other teams, as is the fact that he has shown he can score without having plays ran for him. He is a perfect fourth-option or sixth-man on a title contender, and at just $9.1 million next season, he could be considered a bargain
Young could become a free agent following next season if he declines his player option, and his value may never be higher.It will be great to see what happens on draft night!
