Even though Domantas Sabonis has played well when starting at center, Indiana Pacers coach Nate McMillan currently has no plans to move Myles Turner or Thaddeus Young to the bench. “We are not at that point where we want to experiment,” McMillan told Kevin Bowen of 1070 The Fan. “Thaddeus is our starting 4, and Sabonis is coming off the bench for us.”

But like most of Porzingis’ opponents these days, Young was absolutely torched on Sunday night by the new and improved 22-year-old. So what’s the difference? “Melo’s not there,” Young told the Daily News after his Pacers were upended by the Knicks, 108-101. “So he’s going to get the ball 10 or 15 more times per game. Anytime a guy sees the ball that much, the rim just gets bigger.”
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.
