Thaddeus Young Meets With Denver

by Paul Raymond | Posted on Monday, December 5th, 2011

Restricted free agent Thaddues Young met with the Denver Nuggets today and according to Ken Berger of CBS things went really well. He even tweets that another conversation is upcoming. I did say, restricted free agent, so his former team the Philadelphia 76ers will have a chance to match any offer he’s given.

@KBergCBS: “Good conversation” today between #Nuggets and RFA Thaddeus Young, and more conversations planned, source says.

If Young were too sign with the Nuggets he’d be the primary backup for Danilo Gallinari. Young averaged 12.7 points and 5.3 rebounds averaging 26 minutes per game in 2010-11. He only started one game so all that production was off the bench, adding that kind of production to the Nuggets bench will only make them stronger.

The question is will the Sixers let that kind of production get away? It will probably depend on the offer. Team President Rod Thorn has said “As long as it’s reasonable, we’ll definitely match it. He’s a key guy for us. We need him. And we definitely want to have him back.” (Philadelphia Daily News) What they determine is reasonable will probably depend on how ready they think Evan Turner is for an increased role.
