PF • 6’8, 230 lbs; 13th year, Georgia Tech

HYBRID

NBA ROLE: TWO-WAY FORWARD

 

He doesn’t have the name recognition of other players w/ comparable production but don’t get it twisted: Thaddeus Young makes a nice impact each night; a bouncy, hybrid forward who presents invaluable intangibles to the table, T. Young works hard on D and brings a shifty, yet controlled approach when charging to the cup; efficient scorer and slasher – rarely makes mistakes on the court; takes his time if there’s a mismatch – Young has a natural speed advantage over most fours, can score off the dribble (nifty, lefty finishes in the lane) or faceup on the elbow; needs to stretch the floor better: threes aren't a strong suit but can knock em down if wide open; signed w/ Bulls – veteran leader/6th man
