Brooklyn has traded forward Thad Young to the Indiana Pacers for the 20th pick and a future 2nd rounder, league sources tell @TheVertical.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojVerticalNBA) June 23, 2016
The Nets were trying to deal Young to get into the first round and they've done so. Earlier today Wojnarowski reported the Nets were offering Young to several Western Conference teams, but it's an Eastern Conference team that's landed Young.
The Pacers had a need at PF and Young is coming off a career season. He averaged 15.1 points and nine rebounds per game last year. He'll start at PF next to young center Myles Turner. The Pacers previously traded for Jeff Teague yesterday.
The Nets have needs at multiple positions and will likely take the best player on their draft board at No. 20. It's unclear if they have a particular player in mind.Back to the Indiana Pacers Newsfeed
