  • 5 weeks later...

 

This was said before his last game where he put up a 15/9/6/3 line in 33 minutes 

He didn’t play any SF minutes that game but he did play like 17 first half minutes (before the game blew open)  

 

This was then reported a day later 

There’s no way he takes minutes from Carter or Markkanen but maybe they do try and shoe horn him into some SF minutes to appease him

Just something to keep an eye on

Thad Young complains about minutes then gets more playing time than Lauri Markkanen (the franchise cornerstone) who has been playing his best ball lately 

I don’t know if they are trying to showcase Thad since he’s eligible to get traded December 15 but Boylen is getting killed for it locally so no way it continues 

Thad would make a more solid pick up if he was getting minutes not at the cost of Markkanen but this is a situation worth monitoring and worth a flier to see if this trend continues and/or if he starts getting SF minutes

The Bulls had plans on running Markkanen at the 5 to open up playing time for Thad going into the season but they went away w that early in the season after Lauri was getting destroyed which is why Thad has been complaining about minutes 

This Carter injury definitely opens up more minutes for Thad tho 

He makes for a great consolation prize if u missed out on Gafford as Thad has proven to have a fantasy friendly game 

Should see minutes in the high 20s

  1. Not a lot of talk on Thad given he was announced as starter tonight. Are people that down on his game this year or do we think it was just a matter of lower minutes which shouldn't be an issue for next little while.

 

He'll go 5-14 tonight for 16 points, a three, no fts 6 boards, 2 assists, 1 steal, no blocks and three turns.  So he's moved into the back end top 150 instead of back end top 250.  More power to him and his owners I guess.

I love this. So basically still unrosterable

Yup all fantasy vets know what thad has been doing for years when he gets the mins. 

 

The crowing in here is unreal.  "fantasy vets" crowing after 1 game where he went 7-16 1-2 only 6 boards and was credited with 2 fluke steals that Dunn actually created?  Where if he doesn't get those his line is mediocre for most h2h builds at best?  Where he shot 14% over his career and season three point percentage?  

You guys like at points too much or something?  This is not a great line.  This is a like a 90-120 type line and it's the absolute best you'll get out of him.

Yikes.

I do agree his 3 point shot is not the best, but at least still shooting over 32% on the season on lil over 3 attempts. The main takeaway is the minutes, u can't ignore 30+ minutes from the WW unless shallow league. Also, the Bulls schedule is set up too good with the Carter injury 4/4/4/4. I expect his fg% to rise with more attempts +10 shots and his FT has been terrible tho on minimal attempts. 

1.2/13.5/6/2.5/1.5 I'd be content with these averages for the next month

Seems like you're still mad you picked up gafford. Its okay bud. Happens to the best of us...better luck next time.

No1 is expecting him to put up this kind of line every game. He's always known for having across the board production  with emphasis on steals. 

And 5-7 rebs a game is in line with his normal avg. Dont thinn anyone thinks he'll get 10 rebs lol.

His highest avg was 9 reb a game, 5.9 throughout his career so yeah not expecting high rebounds. Thad's value throughout his career came from little bit of everything along with high steals from the PF spot.
