Nick Young Draws Interest From Bulls, Others, According To Report

Nick Young has drawn interest from the Chicago Bulls and at least four other teams as a restricted free agent, according to Michael Lee of the Washington Post. The Washington Wizards can match any offer sheet Young signs with another team, and the team has indicated it would like to keep the four-year guard in house.

Young, a USC product, is known primarily for his explosive scoring; he averaged a career-high 17.4 points per game last season in starting 40 games in 64 appearances. Young was at his best in January and February, over which he averaged 20 points on efficient shooting. Over the rest of the season, his shooting was less sharp, though he is a career 38 percent three-point shooter.

The other teams Lee reports have expressed interest in Young include the shorthanded Denver Nuggets, the Phoenix Suns (who will be cutting Vince Carter loose), the starved-for-scorers New Orleans Hornets and the Sacramento Kings.
