To help Young develop as a leader and hasten his learning curve as a floor general, Schlenk acquired Jeremy Lin in a trade with Brooklyn. Lin was a rookie in Golden State when Schlenk worked in the front office there. “From what I’ve heard, he’s going to be a great mentor for me,” Young said of Lin. “We’ve been talking. He’s a good dude. He’s been through the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. He’s seen it all, so I’m looking forward to picking his brain.”
Len finished the season third in screen assists per 36 minutes (6.7) and fifth in rebounding box outs per 36 minutes (13.2). In fact, Len has it in mind that his role will include setting lots of picks for players like Trae Young and Jeremy Lin. “When you have someone like Trae,” Len said, “you’ve got to get him open, so it’s about setting great screens and rolling hard to the rim. It’s going to open up shots for him and plays for guys around me.”
