Young is expected to finalize a one-year, $1.3 million contract with the Nanjing Monkey King of the Chinese Basketball Association in the coming days, Sportando reports.
Young becomes the second player from the Pacers' 2017-18 roster to bolt for China this offseason, following in the footsteps of center Al Jefferson, who inked a deal with the Xinjiang Flying Tigers in July. The combo guard, who appeared in 59 games for the Pacers and averaged 3.9 points and 1.2 rebounds in 10.5 minutes per contest during his third NBA campaign, could look to return to North America once Nanjing's season ends in February or March.
Young had his team option declined by the Pacers on Friday and will become a free agent, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
In three years as Pacers, Young never managed to break into the regular rotation, starting in just one game over the course of his young career and never averaging more than 10 minutes per game over the course of a season. He'll now be on the open market as a free agent, where he will look to latch onto a team's roster before the start of training camp.
Young is dealing with a sinus infection and is listed as questionable for Friday's Game 3 against the Cavaliers.
Considering it's not injury related, Young shouldn't be on the sidelines for long, though there's certainly a chance he doesn't feel healthy enough to take the court in Game 3. Look for his status to be updated after Friday's morning shootaround and even if Young is unable to play, his absence wouldn't have an impact on the regular rotation. Young has yet to see the floor across two playoff games.
Young recorded three points (1-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt) and two assists during Friday's 92-73 loss to the Raptors.
Young's two assists Friday were his highest total since dishing out two dimes on Mar. 4. The former Oregon Duck is averaging 3.8 points and 0.7 assists over 52 games played this season.
Young did not see the floor during Wednesday's 96-92 loss to the Pelicans.
Young has not played a single minute in five of the last six games. After averaging 5.3 points, 1.9 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 1.1 threes, and 0.6 steals in 16.7 minutes per game during February, Young has mostly been buried on the bench here in March.
