This isn’t very surprising. When asked by K.C Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago about Thaddeus Young, Zach LaVine said he would prefer for Young to stay in Chicago.

Zach LaVine is the Chicago Bulls best player and only All-Star. His opinion might carry some weight with the new front office consisting of Vice President of Basketball Artūras Karnišovas and General Manager Marc Eversley. It’s also been no secret that teams have called about Thaddeus Young this season, as he has been arguably the Bulls’ second-best player behind LaVine.

For the 2021 season, Thad is averaging 12.2 PPG, 4.4 APG, and 6.5 RPG, while shooting 59% from the field. What the numbers don’t show is Thad’s leadership and universal respect in the locker room.

Reported by Kevin O-Connor of The Ringer, Artūras Karnišovas was telling teams around the league that Thad Young was not available in potential trades. This was reported on March 8, 2020, though the circumstances could have changed since the original report.

At the time the comments were made, the Chicago Bulls were only two games under .500 and seemed to be hitting their stride. That changed coming out of the All-Star break, meaning young assets and draft picks might be the way to go now that this new front office see’s what they have.

The deadline is quickly approaching and AKME have difficult decisions ahead.
