Sam Hinkie Speaks On Thaddeus Young Trade

The Sixers GM breaks his silence after the Thaddeus Young trade was completed Saturday. On Tuesday afternoon, Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie emerged from hiding and spoke to the media for the first time since the NBA Draft in June. The topic of discussion was the Sixers three-team deal which sent Thaddeus Young to Minnesota, and as always he provided some pretty good talking points. On First Round Picks Hinkie: You dont see many 1st rounders trading hands these days. #Sixers— Eliot Shorr-Parks (@EliotShorrParks) August 26, 2014 I don't totally agree with that. The 2015 draft alone has...

Why The Thaddeus Young Trade Was a Good Move

Something is always better than nothing. Thaddeus Young was going to leave as a free agent after this season. And that's the end of the post. Good night, everybody! In all seriousness though, when discussing any possible trade involving Thaddeus Young this offseason, that's the first thing you have to keep in mind. It wasn't a secret. He didn't make a big scene out of demanding a trade, because he's a professional, but it was out there. Even if it wasn't, to other GM's, he could be seen as either trading assets for a guy who could leave after one year, or even more dangerous, a guy who...

The Thaddeus Young Trade Was An OK But Sobering Exchange

The Thaddeus Young Trade Was An OK But Sobering Exchange

It's hard to be upset at the Sixers trying to get a draft pick for Thaddeus Young, but it's a sobering reminder of the consequences associated with the Sixers rebuilding strategy. The Sixers were right to trade Thaddeus Young. He's a player who, as much as I like him, will not be around beyond the 2014-15 season. Sam Hinkie and the Sixers were right to get something for him while they could. The pick they got back was a fair return for Young. Not necessarily a great return, as Miami, even with Luol Deng replacing LeBron James, and even with the aging and injury-plagued new "Big 3", should...

Done Deal: Thaddeus Young Traded To Minnesota

Woj says he's on his way to Minnesota. Thaddeus Young has been involved in trade rumors for nearly a year now, and has been tied to the Minnesota Timberwolves for nearly a month. While the reported return package may have changed, one thing is official: Young will be a member of the Timberwolves. The deal cannot be official until Saturday, but Woj has the full details: As @JerryZgoda 1st reported, Minny's Luc Mbah a Moute, Alexey Shved and Heat '15 1st-rounder go to 76ers for Thad Young.

The Thaddeus Young Deal Probably Doesn't Include Anthony Bennett

We've got at least 2 days until the trade can be official. Shved though. The Kevin Love-Andrew Wiggins trade moratorium is still ongoing, and the secondary Thaddeus Young trade keeps changing. Jerry Zgoda, Timberwolves beat writer for the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, has been on top of the twists in the summer saga, and has believed for a while that Anthony Bennett is not involved in any transaction with the 76ers for Young: Just a reminder: if you keep reading Bennett is headed to Philly for Young in forthcoming trade...don't believe it. — Jerry Zgoda (@JerryZgoda) August 20,...
