Earlier today Thaddeus Young was traded to the Indiana Pacers for two draft picks.
So Thaddeus Young and his 12 million dollar salary has been traded to the Indiana Pacers in exchange for the 20th pick in the draft and a future protected 2nd round pick. Just now, the Pacers selected Caris Levert with the 20th overall pick, and as long as the league passes this trade, then Lavert will be heading to Brooklyn. I don't know much about Caris lever besides the fact that he played for Michigan and his season ended early to due an injury to his left leg. So I'm not sure as to why Brooklyn is making this deal. However, they are known for making absolutely brutal trades. Which is why the Celtics have 8 picks in the draft tonight. So quick shoutout to Brooklyn for constantly getting trade fucked and for helping other teams drastically improve!
Looks like Indiana is making some big moves, and if you ask me I have no idea how they pulled this one out. It's not like Young is a star, but he's definitely a valuable asset to have at the 4 spot. He's lengthy and unbelievably athletic for his size. Over the years he's totally developed his game, and became a solid scoring threat. Not to mention, he's a pretty good ball handler for his size. Looks like Indiana will be a tough team to face in the east after adding Young and Jeff Teague.
