Spurs ship Young to Raptors

The San Antonio Spurs have acquired guard Goran Dragić, a protected 2022 first-round pick from Toronto in exchange for center Drew Eubanks, forward Thaddeus Young, and a 2022 second-round pick, the teams announced Thursday.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Raptors are waiving Drew Eubanks. In addition, the 35-year-old Dragić, who appeared in five games this season for the Raptors, will reportedly be bought out by the Spurs.

The 33-year-old Young, who the Spurs acquired in the offseason, appeared in 26 games this season, averaging 6.1 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 2.3 assists in 14.2 minutes. The 15-year veteran should give the red-hot Raptors, who have won seven-straight, a boost off the bench.

For the Spurs, they get a protected first-round pick, which will be very helpful as they continue to rebuild.
