This is LITERALLY the first rumor I’ve seen associated with the Sixers or any player on the Sixers other than us being one of like 15 teams interested in Bostjan Nachbar. Rod Thorn is either the least active GM around, or the sneakiest. I know what my money is on.
Anyway, the rumor is that Thad Young had a meeting with the Nuggets today, it went very well, and they plan to meet again. The Nuggets are in a tight spot with Nene probably leaving and free agents Kenyon Martin, JR Smith and Wilson Chandler stuck in China. They also will have money because of the points I just made.
I’d love to have Thad stay on for about $8 million per year. Get much higher than that and I become a lot less interested. Though, if we are just going to take that money and spend it on someone horrible (see Brown, Kwame) I’d rather have Thad. He’s 23, and even if he doesn’t improve at all, he’s one of the better 6th men in the league and the 3rd best player on our team behind ‘Dre and Jrue, in my opinion.
What would you guys pay to keep Thad around?
