Default Nick Young

What have you guys thought of him so far this year?

I'm fairly impressed with him this year. Although he has a 6'7 frame, I think he could clean the glass a little better. He's averaging less than 2 rebounds in 14 minutes a game. He's proved to be a decent scorer, though. Especially a rookie, getting 7 points during 14 minutes.

I think if NY was sent to the D-League he could get some minutes in games and really mature. In a few years (Hell, maybe even next) I think he could start at SG, seeing how that's our weak spot.

When I think of NY's max potential I think of Michael Redd... which would be a great addition to our team.

He seems to be a bit more of a pure scorer than Michael Redd (but maybe not the same kind of shooter). His scoring has been good, although it's been streaky, which is expected of a rookie and also that was what he was known for in college. What's impressed me about him this season is he's not just looking for his shot and has been working well within the offense, looking for his teammates and such. Also, he's been hustling on defense and while he's not a great defender (and probably never will be), he's at least shown so far that he could be an adequete one, which is a lot better than I thought he was going to be and I'll be fine with him on that end as long as he continues to put forth the effort.
