Default Thaddeus Young

I want Thad young and Jeff Foster, then fill out the roster with cheap filler! Why aren't we after this guy?

Thaddeus Young and the Nuggets spoke on Monday and have more conversations planned, according to a source.

Denver's interest in signing Young could be an indication that the team is preparing for the departure of Nene.

What if we have made a call to him but it just hasn't been leaked? Seriously, it's like we think that the Raptors brain trust hasn't thought of these names before.

And I don't get why he'd go to Denver.

Jeff Foster is going to end up being a lifer in Indiana. He hasn't left in the last 12-13 years. Why would he leave now?

He'd go to DEN to get a boatload of minutes starting at the 4. Not many teams can start Young at the 4 because the league is stacked with starting caliber 4s, but DEN is one of them and obviously they're desperate to sign 2-3 starters(2 definitely at PF/C, and SG if Afflalo leaves) and fill out the rest of their roster since they only have like 6 guys signed right now or something crazy like that

Maybe I just don't see him as a great option at the 4 in the West (going up against guys like Gasol for instance). I still think they'll end up resigning Nene and I think they could go after a guy like Jeff Green just to give him a fresh start.

thaddeus' natural position is the SF no doubt, he's too undersized to go up against power forwards like what claudius said and also not enough muscle to make a difference against post players on defence.

i would love to see him here, but utah seems like a great place for him to sign if he wants to get into playoff contention. but he's a money chaser at this point of his career, and denver or golden state is the ideal place from him to bump up his stats.

Green got torched by PFs when he played in OKC, what makes you think he does any better than Young? And at least Young has a couple of go to offensive moves. Green is average all around really. I'd rather have Young to be honest in any situation.

^ :yeahthat: going from Nene/Martin to Thad Young is a huge downgrade in the PF position imo. In philly he played most of his time as a SF and he was one of their best scorers. I think an ideal team for him would be to play for Phx or GS, where his stats could really shine

Wherever he goes, I hope he lands with a team that runs a fair amount. He is fun to watch in transition. Sick athlete.
