Default Will Sixers keep Thaddeus Young?

The Sixers (18-63) publicly have expressed their desire to build around Young and rookies Michael Carter-Williams and Nerlens Noel. However, it's no secret that Young wants to play for a contender and wasn't thrilled that the Sixers tanked this season.

For now, his immediate goal is to fly to his hometown of Memphis with his family Thursday afternoon. He will go on a European vacation to get his mind off what he called the toughest season of his career.

"I'm going to do some touring of Greece, Italy, Paris, England," Young said.

He is slated to make about $9.1 million next season and has a player option worth a little less than $9.8 million with the Sixers for the 2015-16 campaign.

Default Re: Will Sixers keep Thaddeus Young?

Thaddeus Young, who probably felt like the only shipwreck survivor still stranded on the beach this season, said he's going to wait until after the draft to have his big talk with 76ers management.

Young wants to see what the team does on draft night and gauge for himself how long this rebuilding process might really take. He has played seven seasons for an organization that has had five head coaches, four general managers, and two ownership groups during that span. Through it all, he has waited for the one thing that means something to him.

"I just want to win," he said Thursday, as the team packed up after a season-ending win over Miami on Wednesday night that closed its record at 19-63. "It got very hard. It got very frustrating at times.
