Indiana Pacers forward Thaddeus Young is seriously considering declining his $13.7 million player option for the 2018-19 season and becoming an unrestricted free agent this summer, according to a report from ESPN.
Young has until June 29 to make the decision. The 29-year-old averaged 11.8 points and 6.3 rebounds this past season, shooting 48.7 percent from the field and 32.0 percent from three.
A 10-year veteran, Young is searching for a long-term contract if he decides to become a free agent. He and the Pacers could also agree upon an extension.
Young and the Pacers took the Cleveland Cavaliers to seven games in the first-round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. The 6-8 swingman posted averages of 11.3 points, 7.7 rebounds and 1.7 steals against the Cavs.
