|Thaddeus Young: Traded to San Antonio|
Young, along with Al-Farouq Aminu, a future first-round pick and two second-round picks, has been traded to the Spurs from the Bulls in exchange for DeMar DeRozan, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
The Scoop: In his second season with the Bulls, Young averaged 12.1 points, 6.2 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.1 steals across 24.3 minutes per game. It is unclear what role the 33-year-old will play in San Antonio as it made offseason moves for Doug McDermott and Zach Collins and still has Luka Samanic and Keldon Johnson on the current roster. Young has never played fewer than 20.0 minutes per game in his career, and that's unlikely to change in 2021-22. At worst, Young figures to be the Spurs' first big man off the bench.

|Thaddeus Young: Scores 20 in season finale|
Young registered 20 points (8-15 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-6 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and three blocks across 26 minutes in Sunday's win over the Bucks.
The Scoop: Young ended the regular season on a strong note, starting in six of Chicago's last nine games and scoring in double digits in each one of those contests. The veteran power forward moved between the bench and the starting lineup all season long, and he ended the campaign averaging 12.1 points, 6.2 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.1 steals across 24.3 minutes per game in 68 appearances (23 starts).

|Thaddeus Young: Double-double in loss|
Young registered 19 points (9-18 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-3 FT), 13 rebounds, four assists and one steal in 30 minutes during Saturday's 105-91 loss to the Nets.
The Scoop: The 32-year-old received his second straight start with Daniel Theis (hip) sidelined to post his seventh double-double of the season. Young has been a consistent fantasy contributor over the month of May, averaging 11.7 points, 6.8 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 1.0 steals over his last eight games. The 14-year forward will look to keep up his productive play Sunday at home against the Bucks.

|Thaddeus Young: Starting Thursday's game|
