Joe Young wears gold necklace of two $100 bills

ORLANDO, Fla. — As Joe Young met with reporters at the Amway Center following a strong showing in Game 1 of Summer League, he had something new around his neck. Or at least something I had never seen before.

One day into free agency, after nearly $2 billion — yes, ‘B’ as in billion — was committed, Young wore a gold necklace with two $100 bills, as seen below.

Young wore this chain to his postgame interview.

Does it have a significant meaning, I asked him.

“No,” he said smiling.

“I mean, congrats to everybody yesterday. It was an amazing day. When I seen that, I started wearing my chain a little bit. Congrats to everybody on their success and their contracts.”

Good timing by Joe. Gotta love his sense of humor.

His former teammate Solomon Hill agreed to sign with New Orleans on a four year deal worth $58 million. The salary cap was officially announced Saturday afternoon.

Cap: $94.143 million
Tax level: $113.287 million
Floor: $84.729 million
