It was reported yesterday that Young appears the most likely member of the Nets to be traded. What’s the more, the Nets are willing to deal Young, according to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News. The Raptors and Clippers are two other teams that reportedly have interest in Young.
Young, a ninth-year veteran, re-signed with the Nets this past summer on a four-year, $50MM deal. Young has enjoyed a solid season and is averaging 15.1 points and 9.1 rebounds per game.
