But (Thaddeus) Young also thinks about stomaching another year of disappointment. He doubts he has it in him. Young was noncommittal Thursday about whether he wants to return to the Sixers for an eighth season.
“It’s one of those things that has to be talked about,” Young said about his end-of-season meeting with general manager Sam Hinkie and coach Brett Brown. “It just depends on where we’re going, what we’re trying to do, and me just sit down with my family and talking about it. I think that’s the biggest thing. I’m a family man. I have a wife and kids … and I have to think about it from a business aspect, also.” I’ll be 26 this summer, and going into next year. After next season I’ll be 27. … People are supposed to hit their prime at certain points of their career.”

Bobby Portis has apologized to his Bulls teammates for getting into a fight that left Nikola Mirotic with facial fractures and a concussion. “He didn’t address us today, but he did address the team before so that was taken care of,” Bulls swingman Justin Holiday said after Friday’s practice.
Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg acknowledged that Portis’ apology took place during a team meeting but did not want to go into specific details about his message. “I’ll keep that between the team,” Hoiberg said, “as far as exactly what was said in that meeting.”
