Sources: Teams Competing for Nick Young
Nick Young is a free agent for the first time in his career and may be forced to ponder leaving the only organization for which he has played. The Washington Wizards intend to retain him but realize that they will have competition from several teams, including Chicago, Denver, New Orleans, Sacramento and Phoenix, according to sources with knowledge of the situation.
The Wizards, though, have the ultimate advantage because they can match any offer Young receives after tendering him a $3.7 million qualifying offer. NBA teams will have the opportunity to speak with players and make pitches to free agents starting at 10 a.m. on Monday and while Young does not have any face-to-face meetings scheduled, he is expected to speak with teams over the next few days.
