The 76ers are getting younger. (OK, that was terrible. I apologize.)
According to the Philadelphia Daily News, the 76ers have acquired forward Sam Young from Memphis for a 2005 second round pick, Ricky Sanchez. Sanchez is currently in Argentina.
Young is in the final year of a three-year rookie deal making a little less than $1 million.
Young was the 36th overall pick in the 2009 draft by the Grizzlies after being named first-team all Big East his senior season at Pitt. Young has averaged 6.9 points in his three seasons with Memphis during his 17.5 minutes per game.
