76ers add Sam Young from the Grizzlies for the rights to a 2005 pick

 

The Philadelphia 76ers has acquired Sam Young.

Young was traded from the Memphis Grizzlies to the 76ers. In return, the Grizzlies receive the draft rights to 2005 draft pick Ricky Sanchez.

This is the first trade of the deadline day. The Grizzlies were shopping the swingman in recent days, and the Sixers wanted to add depth for the stretch run.

He is expected to be a solid addition to the team going forward. He is especially a good defender.

After this season, he will become a restricted free agent. He is making $947,800 this season.
