Depending on what happens with Derrick Favors at the end of next season, the Utah Jazz could very well be in the market for a new power forward. Although he wouldn’t necessarily be an ideal replacement, Thaddeus Young could certainly be a worthy stopgap at the position. His numbers were somewhat down last season in what was kind of an odd year for the veteran in Indiana, but his time in Philadelphia, Minnesota and Brooklyn showed that he still has plenty left in the tank.
Not to mention, he also converted on a career-high 38.1 percent of his three-point attempts last season which means he could very well serve as a solid stretch-four option for the Jazz who’s also more than capable of competing and scoring in the paint. If he can revert to being the 15 and 9 guy that he was in his last season in Brooklyn, he could be an excellent addition for Utah’s frontcourt.
