The Indiana Pacers' Thaddeus Young is considering whether he wants to return for 2018-19 for $13.7 million or decline his player option to become an unrestricted free agent, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
The 29-year-old Young, an 11-year veteran, could try to negotiate a new contract with the Pacers or join a formidable list of NBA talent that will be unrestricted free agents or who also hold player options.
Young, a 6-foot-8 power forward, averaged 11.8 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.7 steals a game in 32.2 minutes last season. He, guard Victor Oladopo and center Myles Turner led the rising Pacers, who forced the Cleveland Cavaliers to a seventh game in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs in April.
Against the Cavs, Young averaged 11.3 points, 7.7 rebounds and 1.7 steals.
Turner could get an extension off his rookie contract later in the year.
