Phoenix Suns will definitely look to improve their roster throughout the year as they’re hoping to return to the NBA Finals, after their impressive run last season.
The Suns still have interest in veteran forward Thaddeus Young, per John Gambadoro of Arizonasports.com. Young was part of the trade that sent DeMar DeRozan to the Chicago Bulls during this past offseason.
Now, as part of the San Antonio Spurs, the former Pacers and Sixers forward will be the veteran leader on a young team. Young appeared in 68 games with the Bulls last season, averaging 12.1 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 4.3 assists per contest.
The veteran forward has been on the last year of a three-year deal he signed with the Chicago Bulls during the 2019-20 season. He has a remaining salary of $14 million for this season.
It’s pretty obvious that the Spurs won’t opt to re-sign Young, who will be an unrestricted free agent next offseason. The Spurs entered a rebuilding state this year, after trading DeMar DeRozan to Chicago.
In any case, Thaddeus Young could be available for a trade at some point during this season. For now, there is a belief that he will stay put in San Antonio.
