Weaknesses: Goes through periods in the game where he will settle for the jumper instead of driving to the basket and drawing fouls Doesnt get to the line as much as he should because of this Doesnt always maintain a high level of intensity on defense Some questions have been raised as to weather he has the killer instinct and toughness to consistently compete He isnt a mind blowing athlete, but above average Has a bad habit of standing around at times instead of moving without the ball When guarded by a great athlete Young lacks the explosive first step needed to get full separation from his defender Could stand to work on adding more upper body strength to his frame as he doesnt always finish after contact While he has three-point range he can go through periods of inconsistency Defensively he has a bad habit of reaching for steals instead of concentrating on his footwork Often Young can get himself into foul trouble
Weaknesses: Lacks focus and/or intensity at times, does not naturally have the aggressive nature of asserting himself, particularly on the offensive end when he has the ball in his hands should be dominating weak defenders when isolated one-on-one and defensively on the ball Work ethic hasn’t historically been where it needs to be but it is improving under new coaching staff Has all the tools but often struggles with putting it all together at one time/place Should be a better and more bothersome on-ball defender than he currently is due to his athleticism and reach Must learn to close out on the ball better on shooters and challenge attempts with his ample length and quickness Must do a better job of moving without the basketball, hustling off screens and finding the soft spots in zones Additional work in the weight room will help him get even better going to the basket off the dribble, especially considering he already has good ball skills and athleticism Has some innate understanding of the game but increased situational awareness will take his play to new heights.
