Thaddeus YoungHt/Wt: 6-8 / 210 lbs
Team: Georgia Tech
2007 Draft Profile
Has the advantage of being left handed making him tougher to defend. He has great length for a wing player and is a strong competitor. His outside shooting and shot off the dribble have shown solid improvement. Extremely fluid and explosive blessed with incredible gifts prototypical small forward. Foot speed and length make him a terrific pressure defender, and triggers the press defense well with his speed and quickness. Skills are still raw and his ball handling can be sloppy at times. He needs to add a great deal of weight, right now he can get pushed around inside. Still a bit inconsistent shooting the ball from outside, but showing is vast improvement. Going to his right needs to be worked on before he gets to the next level.
