by August 31, 2011

Thaddeous Young’s agent tells Hoopshype that his client has been approached by several Chinese clubs during the lockout: “I have been contacted by multiple teams in China expressing very serious interest in having Thaddeus Young play in their league this season,’ [Agent Jim Tanner] said. ‘I have discussed this with Thad and he is intrigued by the possibility of playing in China if the lockout continues and has asked me to further explore these opportunities. At this point, our conversations with the teams have been preliminary but we are continuing to talk and to do our due diligence on each option.’ Wilson Chandler and Earl Clark are the only two NBA players that have committed to joining the Chinese League so far.”
