IND Guard: 6’2, 180 lbs; 3rd year, Oregon

 NBA Role: offensive-minded combo guard • UnderDOG

Joseph ‘Mighty Joe’ Young: an undersized two guard with a solid “one-two” off the bench; looked comfortable as a shooter and finisher in the Orlando Summer League last July – Young lacks ideal size but is a pretty clever shot creator – strong & confident w/ a live dribble, cashes Js off the bounce, finds the open man after a screen; a keeper down the road for plenty of second-unit buckets – don’t be shocked if Young is a rotational, 8th or 9th man for Nate McMillan to rely upon at some point
