Fansided.com: Team targeting Thaddeus Young

25 posts in this topic

I put the source here, because I suggest that you take it's word with a grain of salt. Fansided.com does post a ton of crap but they seem to think that the Hornets are looking to trade for Thaddeus Young. Not sure what I think of the potential trade but isn't as crazy as many that I've read about.

I really like Thaddeus Young, but we already have quite a few PF's on the roster. Though I do think he is an upgrade over all of them, I'm not sure how I would feel about trading for him after signing Marvin Williams. I don't think there's much of a chance of this happening.

As long as it involves Hendo and future picks, lets go get him.

From how it read to me, this was a fan question that they bounced off of a writer who said it made sense.  So basically, we aren't targeting Young, this was just conjecture.  And two, I don't want to trade Cody.

Thad is a very solid athletic stretch 4.  We'd be doing him a favor considering he's in his prime and the 76ers are in tank mode.

Yes to Henderson. No to future picks. But Philly isn't going to want anything that doesn't include future picks. And they probably want nothing to do with Henderson's contract.

This team is not so much in contention mode that we can afford to start selling off picks again. That's what got us in trouble during the Larry Brown era. Like Lance, I like bringing him in if the price is right.

I think Young could be a good addition at the right price. He can play SF and PF, and gives us another scoring option. For me, he'd slot in nicely at PF and allow us to continue to give Zeller and Vonleh minutes off the bench. Granted we have Marvin Williams but he can play SF as well as PF, so he could be an option off the bench behind MKG. Or if they really want Williams to start, put him at one forward position with Young at the other leaving MKG to come off the bench (not my preferred option).

If this deal let us shred Hendo's contract, and keep hold of assets, then this is a move that should help the team.

It doesn't make a lot of sense unless we trade Marvin.

I agree to an extent.  At some point though if we want to win big we're going to invest our assets, the trick is knowing when and knowing how to do it wisely.  Now I'm definitely not on board for trading a potential lottery pick if that's what bringing in a guy like Thad would cost.  However any thing past the 21st pick and I'd probably pull the trigger.  Right now it looks like we'd probably pick next year outside the lottery.  A 21st and a future second honestly would be a fair deal...considering Thad's in his prime and has proven production,  He's just been stuck on poo teams.

Does make sense.  Marvin would be in the perfect role if he was utilized as a heavy rotation guy as opposed to an every night starter.  Vonleh is 2 years away.  With Young and Williams our 2's could stretch the floor with Zeller primarily relieving Jefferson.

 

In the NBA your 2's can win or lose you the game.  You've got to take your 2nd squad just as seriously as your starters when it comes to attacking a defense.

That's right. Our 7 mil rotation player.

This hasn't been emphasized enough on here. Now we'll NEVER get the good player we all expected this offseason!

Miami just paid Josh McRoberts that for the next 4 years. Stretch fours and spacing are the hot commodities of today's NBA hence the prices.

I'm pretty sure we've already gotten the good player we've all expected this season.

It's not that much in today's NBA. Williams could get 30 plus minutes as a back up because he can play the 3 or the 4.  It would be a shame if the team didn't take the chance to further improve their roster because they paid Marvin Williams a little bit more then the MLE. 

 

We all know that McBob took the contract in Miami and he's not gonna start there.

I should have specified sarcasm...

It's quite obvious that horse has been beaten into the ground.

I'm almost positive McRoberts is starting there next year. What is your 5?

 

Chalmers

Wade

Deng

McRoberts

Bosh

Could very well be that.  My thinking is Miami may make a move to get a true 5 considering Bosh is best suited as a 4.

He isn't exactly what we need but would represent an upgrade.

I wouldn't mind Young. He can play PF and SF which we need someone who can score at both positions. Bleacher report listed Young, Josh Smith, Greg Monroe and David West as some potential trade targets. I would love for us to trade for one of these guys by the trade deadline if possible.

Young (Philly) is supposedly in the Love Deal. Hearing that Young will go to Minny and Anthony Bennett to Philly.
