Thaddeus Young has averaged 24.6 points, 6.4 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 4 steals in the five games since the trade deadline passed on Feb. 20.

Young could elevate his trade value by the end of the season but does not view the final 22 games of the campaign as a potential audition for the NBA's other 29 teams.

"Guys always talk and they always say [that at] any given time and given moment, you are auditioning for 29 other teams," Young said. "So me personally, I'm just taking it as going out there and growing as a player and growing as a leader and taking steps towards more success in my career.
