RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013-14

Subscribe now to see our 2013-14 outlook.

2012-13

In the past two years, Young showed that he could be a good scorer on a team that did not win many games. With the Wizards, he averaged nearly 17 points, but saw his minutes slashed when he was traded to the Clippers. Like Thaddeus Young, Nick will be asked to provide some bench scoring, but he is unlikely to provide enough to be a fantasy factor.

2011-12

Young is a one-trick pony. He can score in bunches, but he does virtually all of his damage with jumpers. Coach Flip Saunders did a good job getting him to attack the basket more often last season, but Young’s potential doesn’t go far beyond his ability to hit three-pointers. There’s a good chance he’ll be the team’s starting shooting guard or small forward, but that’s contingent on how the team decides to use Jan Vesely and Jordan Crawford. Considering Crawford’s production, it would be surprising if he weren’t given the starting shooting guard gig entering training camp. That will leave Young to compete with the rookie Vesely for the starting small forward job, assuming the team doesn’t give it to Rashard Lewis. Through 38 games as the team’s starting shooting guard last season, Young averaged 20.6 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 2.0 three-pointers, 0.8 steals and 1.7 turnovers. Draft him for his three-pointers and hope he gets the shots needed to post gaudy scoring numbers like he did as a starter last season.

2010-11

Young is a talented but inconsistent young swingman who again showed some flashes of offensive firepower last year but also was prone to disappear for long stretches. He is purely a scorer at this point in his career and really does not bring much else to the table, but his instant offense off the bench will earn him some playing time. He may compete for the starting small forward spot as well as backing up Arenas at shooting guard.

2009-10

Young is a talented but inconsistent young swingman who showed some flashes of offensive firepower last year. Young is purely a scorer at this point in his career - he really does not bring much else to the table - but he is the type of player who can bring instant offense off the bench, so he will see some time in 2008-09, but less minutes than last year.

2008-09

Young showed some promise in limited run last season, shooting 40 percent from long-range. With the addition of Dixon, Young is probably an end-of-bench guy for now.

2007-08

The Wizard tabbed Young with the 16th overall pick in June's draft to give the team a new and improved version of free agent departee, Jarvis Hayes, as well as DeShawn Stevenson insurance. The 6-7, 200-pound Young (compared by some to the Knicks' Jamal Crawford) averaged 17.5 points on 52.5 percent shooting as a junior last season at USC. He is viewed as a player who can create shots off the dribble and make jump shots from three-point range. He's slated to come off the bench, and with the Wizards not usually rushing rookies into the mix, expect his involvement to increase gradually as the season progresses.
