Thaddeus Young denies asking for trade from Philadelphia 76ersPosted by Inside Hoops
The Philadelphia 76ers are 7-19, and going nowhere fast. Do any players want out? Here’s the Philadelphia Inquirer with the latest on a rumor involving Thaddeus Young:
76ers forward Thad Young, the subject of trade rumors, said Friday he has not asked the team to deal him.
Speaking after the morning shootaround for Friday night’s Brooklyn game, Young poked fun at an Internet report that said he and his agent, Jim Tanner, submitted a formal trade request to Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie weeks ago.
“I just think it’s all funny how it’s sources that say I asked to be traded,” Young said. “At the end of the day, like I said, I’m here 110 percent each and every game, ready to play and just stay focused and try to win basketball games.”
He said Tanner did talk to Hinkie about various situations, including potential trade talks and trade rumors involving him.
