Free agent forward Thaddeus Young says he’s staying in Brooklyn with the Nets.
Young tweeted Wednesday morning that he is “extremely happy” to continue his career with the Nets. A person with knowledge of the deal tells The Associated Press the two sides have agreed to terms on a four-year contract worth $50 million. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been announced. No NBA contracts can be signed until July 9.
Young averaged 13.8 points, 5.9 rebounds and shot 38 percent from 3-point range in 28 games for the Nets after coming from Minnesota in the trade that sent Kevin Garnett back to the Timberwolves.
Young will be entering his ninth season in the league.
