There was plenty of movement during the NBA offseason and Thaddeus Young ended up being part of it. After being moved once in the offseason, Young has a chance to be involved in a trade once again.
The San Antonio Spurs made some big moves in the offseason and DeMar DeRozan was at the forefront. He was sent to the Chicago Bulls in a sign-and-trade deal.
Young was part of the return and it is clear that he is not a long-term piece in San Antonio. Young has put together a strong career all-around but in year 15, might not benefit a rebuilding team. This is where the Spurs have a chance to send him to a contender.
Young is not a piece that will completely alter the direction of a franchise but he is a name that can get it done on both ends coming off the bench. Win-now teams need that depth coming off the bench and this is what Young could bring.
