76ers acquire Sam Young
The 6-foot-6, 220-pound Young, who plays guard and forward, was the 36th overall pick by Memphis in 2009 out of Pitt. He averaged 6.9 points, 2.4 rebounds and 17.5 minutes per game with the Grizzlies.
"We feel Sam's overall skill set can be a valuable asset to our team," Philadelphia president Rod Thorn said. "He adds to our depth at two positions."
