Thaddeus Young, a Memphis native and player for the Indiana Pacers basketball team, is shooting for a partnership with the city that will let him invest $500,000 in a new youth program in South Memphis. Administration officials are exploring the feasibility of a public-private partnership with the Young for Youth Foundation following the group’s pitch to the City Council during the city’s first budget hearing Tuesday. The foundation would take over and maintain the former Head Start and Health Loop buildings next to Mitchell High School, Young’s alma mater, if the council agrees to a matching capital investment in the two properties.
Bird knows he is on the clock with George. The Lakers loom as a threat in free agency. The Pacers engaged at least the Celtics, Sixers, Hawks and Nuggets in trade talks for George at the deadline, though they never appeared serious about moving him, per league sources. (Bird has called the George rumors “fake news”). They explored trading Rodney Stuckey for a backup rim protector, including John Henson, sources say, and Bird will dangle Indy’s first-round pick again this summer in search of veteran help. Bird has been aggressive trading picks for Luis Scola and Thaddeus Young. “Our pick is in play,” Bird said.

As many players noted, part of the Pacers’ inconsistency can be attributed to their road woes, where they have lost six of eight. “We just don’t play the same on the road as we play at home,” said Thaddeus Young, who scored 16 points. “I don’t know what it is and we all know what we need to do. That’s why our record is so vice versa. If we can bring the intensity and energy and efficiency that we bring at home, we would be a 45- or 40-win team right now.”
