Thaddeus Young very available?

In fact, according to executives from two other teams, Thad Young, not LaVine, is the player considered most readily available. That’s largely based on Young’s displeasure with his role and usage last season, his team-friendly deal that carries only a partial guarantee in 2021-22 and his dependability and professionalism.

Asked to reflect on the past two weeks of tragedy and global unrest in NBC Sports Chicago’s “Race in America: A Candid Conversation” panel, Bulls forward Thad Young described a spectrum of emotion. Heaviness. Sadness. Anger. And — as a Black man and father of two sons — fear. “It’s definitely been heavy,” Young said on the panel. “But for me, it’s also scary from a standpoint of, I have two boys to worry about, ages six and nine. It’s just very, very tough to have to see that and then also have to explain that to my kids or explain to them that, ‘Hey, there’s some things that you can’t do that other people can do.’
“We as Black people, as African-Americans, we have to be able to speak up and stand up and have to keep doing that, and we have to do it with precision,” Young said. “We have to do it with the ultimate goal at hand is to create some type of change, and that’s what we have to keep in our mindset. Change. If we don’t keep that in our mindset and we start to follow these smokescreens and follow these mirages, then it takes away from the true power that we have in our hands and it takes away from the true power that we can use to create the change. We have to stay with the precision and stay focused on the task at hand. And that’s justice for George Floyd and justice for all the others that’s going down in this battle.”
Thaddeus Young acknowledged he wished he and the Bulls were going to Orlando with the chosen 22 teams and was confident he’d be fine. He said his health worries are about family. “Everybody has a concern about contracting the virus, but you have guys that understand we have to play also in order to keep the league moving forward,” Young said. “For me, I worry more along the lines of my family’s aspect. We have a young league and a lot of these guys in the league they don’t have kids or they don’t have a family. They may have a girlfriend that they’re dealing with. Besides that, it’s just kind of them. My worry is more along the lines of me being with all the other guys and then coming back home to my family.”
