Player Review 2019: Thaddeus Young

Age: Turns 31 on June 21st.
Years pro: 12
Status: Free agent.
Key stats: Played in 81 games, and for the second consecutive season could have played in all 82. Averaged 12.6 points while hitting 53 percent of his shots, including 35 percent of his 3-point attempts. Also averaged career-high 2.5 assists.

Darren Collison had this way of pronouncing "Thaddeus" that came out sounding like "Daddy-us." Which seemed appropriate, because if the Pacers had father-like figure last season, it was Thaddeus Young, the only standing captain after Victor Oladipo was lost for the season.
