Thaddeus Young diagnosed with a left knee strain; out Friday, doubtful Sunday

The other benefits of KG-Young deal: Nets saved nearly $10 million

Thaddeus Young is now averaging 14.4 points per game and shooting 53.3 percent from three since joining the Nets 15 games ago in the deadline day deal that sent Kevin Garnett to the Timberwolves. In Friday night's seemingly never-ending triple overtime win, he had 24 points, five rebounds, three assists and shot 3-of-5 from deep. Not bad. And as Marc Stein reports Saturday, the deal also saved the Nets around $7 million in luxury taxes. The trade that sent Kevin Garnett back to Minnesota for Thaddeus Young shaved Brooklyn's luxury-tax bill from slightly more than $26 million to...

Thaddeus Young told T-Wolves he wasn't staying in Minnesota

In talking with beat writers from both Brooklyn and Minnesota Monday, Thaddeus Young said he had told the Timberwolves brass that he wouldn't be back next season, that he would opt out of his contract and seek work elsewhere. That, as much as Minnesota's desire to bring back Kevin Garnett, motivated coach/president Flip Saunders and GM Mike Newton to do the deal at the deadline. "At that point in time, with the direction we were going in, that was probably likeliest to happen," said Young after Brooklyn's morning shootaround in Minneapolis. "We went from going from being a team that...

Thaddeus Young says he wants to remain a Net

Here's some good news.  On the night of his best game (so far) as a Net, Thaddeus Young said he wants to stay with Brooklyn. "It’s one of those things where they want me for the future, they want to keep me around," Young said before he scored 21 points and grabbed nine rebounds. "It’s a mutual feeling." Young has an interesting choice this summer.  He could opt out of his player option and go for a longer term contract with the Nets or another team. Or he could play out the final year of  his $10 million contract, then go for the bigger free agent deal in 2016, when the new TV...

Thaddeus Young is the three-point weapon the Nets have needed

The glamor of what hoped and seemed like yet another second half run to the playoffs has worn off considerably over the past week for the Brooklyn Nets. Yet one thing has remained constant since the All-Star break, Thaddeus Young can play. We know that Young has brought the Nets some much needed athleticism and energy on the floor, but he has also filled a void that has been gone since the end of January when Mirza Teletovic was lost for the season with multiple blood clots in his lungs, outside shooting. After Teletovic, a key cog in the Nets bench unit, went down, the Nets were lacking...

Thaddeus Young fitting in with the Nets

NEW YORK -- It looked like Thaddeus Young and Markel Brown had been playing together for years. Try 68 seconds. And yet just over a minute after Young checked in for the first time since being acquired by the Brooklyn Nets in a Feb. 19 trade deadline deal in exchange for Kevin Garnett, he anticipated that the high-flying rookie guard would rise up, threw a perfect lob pass and the duo successfully completed a highlight-reel worthy give-and-go alley-oop in Los Angeles, displaying the kind of on-court cohesiveness you would think takes some significant time to foster.
