Washington Wizards Links: Thaddeus Young To Minnesota, Free Agency News and More

Philadelphia 76ers forward, Thaddeus Young, has been in the rumor mill for quite some time, but it looks like he’s finally heading out of the City of Brotherly Love. We’ve also got some more free agency talk regarding the Washington Wizards. All that and more on today’s Wizardly Links.


- Thad Young is heading to the Minnesota Timberwolves. (via FanSided)

The Philadelphia 76ers are acquiring pieces from the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for Thaddeus Young but don’t expect things to happen in a separate deal.

- The Washington Wizards have one roster spot remaining. Here’s a few players that could potentially fill that spot. (via Wiz of Awes)

Unfortunately, the Hornets have acquired Lance Stephenson and Marvin Williams, leaving not much room for Chris Douglas-Roberts, especially since Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is expected to continue playing big minutes. CDR averaged nearly 7 points and over 2 rebounds per game in about 20 minutes per game last season in Charlotte, but he did shoot nearly 39% from three.

- Washington Wizards forward, Gooden, will not be suiting up for Finland after all. (via Wiz of Awes)

Now that John Wall and Bradley Beal were cut from Team USA, Kevin Seraphin decided to not participate with the French national team and Drew Gooden won’t play for Finland, Nene will be the only Washington Wizard to play in the FIBA Basketball World Cup.
- Ryan Garcia thinks the Washington Wizards need better shot distribution. (via Bullets Forever)

The Wizards attempted (1704), and made (647) the most three-point shots in their franchise’s history. Their field goal percentage from beyond the arc this past season (38 percent) was the third-highest total in franchise history and best since the 2001-2002 season. Thirteen years.

- What are some realistic expectations for the Washington Wizards this upcoming season? (via HoopsHabit)

The Wizards lost 12 games last season where they had a double-digit lead at one point. While that is not all on Wittman, it is a concern for a coach who has had a track record as poor as him.
