talks about winning the MVP of the Dutch Basketball League and leading his team to a regular-season championship.

He also discusses his latest workout for the Golden State Warriors.

“They told me they liked how aggressive I was, that my on-ball defense was good — things like that,” Young recalled of the scouts’ assessment of his latest tryout. “I do know that this one was much, much better than the last one. I felt a lot more comfortable out there, and I think I performed well.”

Prior to the tryout, Young had already been offered a one-year contract by BC Hoverla, one of the top teams in the top league in the Ukrainian SuperLeague that had been scouting him all season.

“The competition is definitely a big step up. There are quite a few former and future NBA players in this league,” Pensack [his agent] said.

Young, however, said he initially needed some time to think the offer over, even though it was seen as a positive step in his professional career and this contract was more lucrative than the last one in Holland.

“I needed to do some research about the league and the team, talk to my family and stuff like that. It felt like the right move, so I signed,” said Young.
