NBA Free Agency: Nick Young '50-50' To Return To Wizards, Andray Blatche Says

As the Wizards brace for what promises to be an incredibly busy and abbreviated free agency period, their decision on whether or not to resign Nick Young looms as arguably their biggest. According to Michael Lee's twitter account via the always reliable Andray Blatche, Nick Young is about a 50-50 to return to the Wizards.

Andray Blatche on if he thinks Nick Young will return to #wizards: "I mean, it’s 50-50. He’s got to do what’s best for him, in his life."

There are a lot of teams out there that can use the instant scoring that Young provides on the perimeter. And to be honest, because of his one-dimensional style of play, he might be better served coming off the bench in a stricly scoring role for a contendor. But I can't imagine a player that young looking for his first big contract will take that type of role.

The Wizards have a shooting guard who is very similar in Jordan Crawford who could step in and replace Young, but they don't have a lot of depth and it is important to retina key players, particularly if the price is right.
