Timberwolves F Thaddeus Young could get the green light to take more threes


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/2/2014) Timberwolves head coach Flip Saunders could give forward Thaddeus Young the green light to shoot more 3-pointers this season, according to the St. Paul Pioneer-Press on Thursday.

Young told reporters he didn't shoot as many threes as he would like in the past because he had a different role with the 76ers under Phil Collins from 2010-13. He only took 34 attempts from 3-point territory over that span. Last season under Brett Brown, he connected on 30.8 percent (90 of 292) of his treys.

"I kind of just took it out of my game completely because I was with (Collins) so much," Young said. "It's one of the things where you do what the coach says and continue to play."

Young averaged a career-best 17.9 points on 45.4 percent shooting from the field in 2013-14. He added 3.9 rebounds and 2.3 assists over 79 games.


Kevin Love deal morphs into three-team trade


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/22/2014) The Cavaliers' acquisition of Kevin Love is set to go down Saturday, and Yahoo.com reports it will end up being a three-team deal.

The Timberwolves will receive Andrew Wiggins , Anthony Bennett and a lottery-protected first-round pick from the Cavaliers in exchange for Love, and are set to move one of those pieces to Philadelphia to complete the deal.

The Wolves will move the first-round pick -- a top-10 protected pick from Miami -- to the 76ers along with Alexey Shved and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute in exchange for Thaddeus Young, as first reported by the Minnesota Star-Tribune. 


Report: Wolves to swap Anthony Bennett for Thaddeus Young


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) 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
(3/16/2014) 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.
