Adrian Wojnarowski reported Thursday that Thaddeus Young has exercised his $13.7M player option for the 2018-19 season.
The Pacers were reported to be interested in restricted free agent Aaron Gordon but this essentially shuts the door on that possibility. The Pacers were able to have approximately $20M in cap room if Young declined his option, but now that he has opted in the Pacers fill a need in-house. They will have some money to make a move or two and have been linked other restricted free agents as well. Young was a fantasy rock last season and while he is not a shiny option, he is going to put up productive stats that will help your team.
