Thaddeus Young with a special 'thank you' to Nets fans

Earlier on Thursday, just hours before the 2016 NBA Draft, the Brooklyn Nets traded away Thaddeus Young, arguably their second best player and possibly the most popular member of the 2015-16 Nets. Young was sent to the Indiana Pacers for the 20th pick in the 2016 NBA Draft and a future, well-protected second round pick. Young seemed to have rejuvenated his career as a member of the Nets, be it because of comfort in a system or the lack of true talent on the roster, fueling much of the "somebody's gotta score/rebound" noise.
