|Report: Wolves to swap Anthony Bennett for Thaddeus Young |
|by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com|
(8/8/14) Though the trade can't go official until August 23, the deal reportedly struck between the Cavaliers and Timberwolves will lead to another trade between Minnesota and the 76ers.
The Philadelphia Daily News reported early Friday that Minnesota, upon receiving Anthony Bennett from the Cavs as part of the Kevin Love trade, would then trade him for Thaddeus Young. The Timberwolves have been showing interest in Young since Love stated his desire to be traded.
Meanwhile, the 76ers want to move Young because he's entering his prime at age 26 and only has one additional year left on his contract. Acquiring Bennett would complete a core of young talent to develop over the coming years. Young was one of the most productive forwards in the league last year playing in Brett Brown's up-tempo offense, averaging 17.9 points, 6.0 rebounds and 2.1 steals per game. Bennett, on the other hand, failed to make any impact what so ever but did show signs of growth during the Summer League.

|Thaddeus Young struggling with expanded role |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(3/16/14) 76ers forward Thaddeus Young has seen his efficiency take a big hit recently, while playing the largest offensive role of his career. Young did manage to turn that around a bit, finishing with more points than field-goal attempts for the first time in four games Saturday against the Grizzlies.
Young wasn't particularly efficient in the game, scoring 20 points on 8 of 19 shooting, but that was an improvement from the previous night when he had 31 field-goal attempts and finished with just 25 points. He filled up the box score well overall Saturday as well, finishing with seven rebounds, three assists and six steals in the 103-77 loss.
Young is enjoying the most productive season of his career by a decent margin, but the added responsibility seems to be taking a toll recently, With the 76ers bereft of NBA talent, Young is shooting just 39.2 percent from the field while averaging 18.5 points, 5.4 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game in the month of March.
