Young agreed to a contract Monday with the Chinese Basketball Association's Zhejiang Lions, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Young will head to China with the hope of using a strong showing overseas as a springboard to return to the NBA, but his time in basketball's top league is most likely over. The 35-year-old hasn't appeared in the NBA since 2018-19, when he saw action in four games with the Nuggets. He didn't suit up domestically or overseas during the 2019-20 campaign.
Young has been waived by the Nuggets.
Young signed with the Nuggets earlier this month, however never saw much action. With Gary Harris and Will Barton nearing returns from lengthy absences, the Nuggets no longer had a need for Young.
Young will be available to make his Nuggets debut Monday night against the Grizzlies, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.
There's no guarantee that Young will see the floor, but he officially passed his physical Monday morning and joined his new team at shootaround. Whether Young plays Monday or not, he eventually figures to settle into a bench role to help the Nuggets make up for the loss of Gary Harris, though he's unlikely to be fantasy-relevant in most formats.
Young signed a contract with the Nuggets on Monday.
Already dealing with injuries to Gary Harris (hip), Will Barton (groin), and Isaiah Thomas (hip), the Nuggets went out and signed Young to provide backcourt depth. It's unclear what role the veteran guard will fill for Denver. Young averaged 7.3 points and 1.6 rebounds across 17.4 minutes per game with the Warriors last season.
Young was arrested in Hollywood late Friday night after being pulled over for a routine traffic violation, ESPN reports. A police department spokesperson stated Young did not obey the officers at the scene, which resulted in the player being arrested for delaying an investigation. Young was released on bail just over three hours later.
Young has a court date set for Sept. 19. It's not immediately clear how the incident will affect the free agent's offseason, but more information should arrive in mid-September. Last season for the Warriors, Young averaged 7.3 points across 17.4 minutes in his age 32 season.
Young will come off the bench for Friday's Game 3 against New Orleans, Anthony Slater of The Athletic Bay Area reports.
With Steph Curry back in the lineup and coach Steve Kerr opting to go with JaVale McGee at center, Young has been pushed out of the starting five. He's seen 16.0 minutes per game over the first two contests of the series, but will likely see a reduction moving forward.
Young managed six points (2-4 FG, 2-4 3Pt), one rebound and one steal across 21 minutes during Golden State's 123-101 win over the Pelicans in Game 1 of their Western Conference second-round playoff series.
Young drew the start at forward in a new-look starting lineup to open the second round, but he was far off the scoring pace set by the rest of his first-unit mates. Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant combined for 43 shot attempts alone, so there also wasn't much left over for Young after Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala also got their work in. With Stephen Curry (knee) slated to be back for Tuesday's Game 2, a return to the bench is likely in the cards for Young, although the possibility remains that head coach Steve Kerr opts to continue deploying a Young-Durant-Green trio at small forward, power forward and center.
Young registered six points (1-3 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT), two rebounds and one assist in Tuesday's blowout 119-79 loss to the Utah Jazz.
Young wrapped up the regular season still struggling to score past 10 points in a recent game, as he last scored in double figures back on Mar. 27. The former first-round pick from USC concluded his 10th NBA season by appearing in 80 games for the Warriors and averaging 7.3 points and 1.6 rebounds per contest. Young will be a free-agent come this summer.
Young posted five points (2-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt), three rebounds and one assist across 20 minutes in Sunday's 117-100 win over the Suns.
Young has settled back into a bench role with the late-March return of Klay Thompson to the starting lineup, and Sunday's line was representative of what his typical production has been in that capacity. The veteran wing had been recently dealing with an illness, as well, but he'd played through it Saturday against the Pelicans and provided eight points (3-4 FG, 2-3 3Pt), four rebounds and two steals across 21 minutes in that contest. Assuming Thompson remains healthy, expect Young to likely continue logging approximately 20 minutes per contest while providing some scoring punch off the bench during the postseason.
Young (illness) is available for Saturday's game against the Pelicans.
As expected, Young will be able to take the floor despite recovering from an illness. Over the past three games, he's averaged 6.0 points and 3.7 rebounds in 24.0 minutes.
Young (illness) is probable for Saturday's game against the Pelicans.
Young continues to battle an illness, though it hasn't caused him to miss a game. Look for more information on his condition following the team's morning shootaround.
Young produced four points (0-4 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT) and three rebounds during the Warriors' 126-106 loss at Indiana Thursday.
Young was not much of a factor during Thursday's loss, as he missed every one of his four three-point attempts and finished with only four points. The former USC star enjoyed two weeks in March when Klay Thompson was injured by averaging 13.3 points over nine games. With Klay Thompson back in the lineup though, Young has seen his scoring decline. In his 11th NBA season, Young is averaging 7.3 points and 1.5 rebounds through 77 games played.
Young (Illness) will play during Thursday's game against Indiana, Mark Medina of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Young was originally questionable for Thursday's game due to an illness, but he's apparently feeling better leading up to tipoff. That said, he may play a smaller workload than usual.
Young is dealing with an illness and is listed as questionable for Thursday's matchup with the Pacers, Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Young is reportedly dealing with flu-like symptoms, but will wait until pregame warmups before determining whether or not he feels healthy enough to give it a go. The Warriors are already dealing with some serious depth issues due to absences from Patrick McCaw (back), Andre Iguodala (knee) and Omri Casspi (ankle), so Young will likely do everything he can to get on the floor.
Young will come off the bench for Thursday's contest against the Bucks, Anthony Slater of The Athletic Bay Area reports.
With Kevin Durant (ribs) and Draymond Green (illness) back in the fold, coach Steve Kerr has opted to send Young back to the bench, while keeping Patrick McCaw in the lineup at shooting guard. When coming off the pine this season, Young has averaged 6.5 points and 1.3 boards in 14.7 minutes.
Young poured in 12 points (4-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and added three rebounds and one assist across 31 minutes in Tuesday's 92-81 loss to the Pacers.
Young's scoring total, albeit modest, paced the Warriors on a night when they considerably struggled on the offensive end. The veteran wing has been reasonably productive while filling in for Klay Thompson (thumb), posting double-digit scoring totals in six of the last seven games. However, spotty shooting has capped his contributions recently, as Young has posted a success rate of 36.4 percent or lower in three of the past four contests.
Young (knee) supplied nine points (3-14 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one steal across 38 minutes in Sunday's 110-91 loss to the Jazz.
The veteran guard couldn't take advantage of the team's rash of injuries, enduring his second sub-30-percent shooting night of the last three games. Young's scoring total was the lowest of his current starting stint in place of Klay Thompson (thumb), but given his solid body of work prior to Sunday, he's likely to bounce back to some degree against the Pacers on Tuesday.
Young (knee) will play and start in Sunday's game against the Jazz, Anthony Slater of The Athletic Bay Area reports.
Young appeared on the injury report with a bruised right knee, but given his probable tag, there was never much concern surrounding his status. With the Warriors dealing with so many injuries, expect Young to see an uptick in minutes at shooting guard Sunday.
Young is probable for Sunday's game against the Jazz due to a right knee contusion.
Young is one of eight Warriors listed on the injury report for Sunday's contest, so if he is cleared to play there's a good chance he could see an uptick in minutes and even start with Klay Thompson (thumb) already ruled out. Look for an update to come either after Sunday morning shootaround or just before tip. Patrick McCaw should see more minutes in the backcourt, regardless if Young plays or not.
Young provided 24 points (9-17 FG, 6-11 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist across 26 minutes in Friday's 106-94 win over the Hawks.
Young's scoring ability was particularly valued down the stretch after Stephen Curry exited the contest late in the third quarter with what turned out to be a left knee sprain. Young notably had a knee issue of his own earlier in the game that he promptly returned from, and upon Curry's exit, he was easily the most talented scorer left on the first unit for the short-handed Warriors. Young has been solid while filling in for Klay Thompson (thumb), posting double-digit scoring efforts in five straight games. His accuracy from distance was especially impressive Friday, as his number of made threes equaled a season high. If Curry is unable to suit up for Sunday's tilt against the Jazz and the rest of Golden State's front-line players also remain sidelined, Young should see his usage levels experience a significant bump.
