Flip Saunders On Nick Young's Free Agency: 'A Lot Of The Money Right Now Is Drying Up'

Flip Saunders was on "The Sports Junkies" on 106.7 The Fan this morning for a brief appearance, and in it, he discussed the status of restricted free agent Nick Young. As each day passes, more questions arise about his future with the team. In light of that, I was surprised to hear Saunders so talkative about Young's status.

Saunders did say that Ernie Grunfeld is "still talking" to Young's representatives about a long-term deal, but he followed that up by saying that, "as in most negotiations," the two sides are apart as far as the terms of a new deal. Then, Saunders said this:

"With Nick's situation, what's happened is a lot of the money right now is drying up in some places. I think he's kind of waiting to see if something does happen. There's always trades and seeing if anything pans out with some of those other trades and see where everything falls into place."

I'm guessing there was a reason Saunders put it that way.
