Free agent forward Thaddeus Young has joined the Chicago Bulls on a three-year, $41 million deal.

The 31-year-old veteran has played for the Indiana Pacers the last three years and was a key part of the rotation. Thad can stretch the floor and use his post up game to be very effective.

Having Young come off the Bulls bench will be impactful because he can hit the occasional three and provide scoring.

This signing pretty much signifies the Bulls will not be targeting Taj Gibson, but Thad Young provides similar attributes to Gibson. Having him paired with Daniel Gafford in the frontcourt coming off the bench could provide exciting basketball for the fans in Chicago.

Thad Young has tasted the playoffs and has been a part of some exciting young teams. His veteran leadership should be beneficial to these young Bulls, and his talent will surely bolster the Bulls bench.
