At one point (Thaddeus) Young thought he might be (Kawhi) Leonard’s teammate.

He said was aware of the rumors that had him being traded to the Spurs (Young and Tim Duncan share the same agent). Young said he would have embraced the move, as winning is the only thing on his mind.

“You know, it’s a great opportunity,” Young said. “I’m one of those guys that just want to win. … We play the game and make a lot of money, but this is our career and me personally, I want to win. I want to play for a winning team, I want to win a championship. … At the end day, right now, the trade deadline is over and I’m just trying to develop guys and rebuild the culture.”

But when he was asked again about joining Leonard in San Antonio, he smiled saying: “It can happen. Like I said, I can play with anybody.”
