Thad Young will help the Raptors lean into their predatory nature

Article Summary:

The Toronto Raptors’ deal for Thad Young shows that they plan to double down on their own predatory instincts.

His lack of playing time in San Antonio obscured it, but Young was still a very effective player, averaging 15.4 points, 9 boards and 5.1 assists per 36 minutes on a 57.4% true shooting.

The point being, the Raps didn’t pay a ton and they got a Thad Young who is still useful, and is going to allow the Raptors to double down on an increasingly mean-spirited game plan. If Young DOES get a top defender, than that means that Barnes, or Boucher, or someone else is going to have an opportunity with someone too slow, or too small.
