76ers Acquire Sam Young from Grizzlies

The Grizzlies traded the versatile Sam Young to the 76ers for the rights to Ricky Sanchez, the Puerto Rican point guard who is currently playing in Argentina.

This is a decent move for the 76ers, who didn’t really give anything up to acquire a solid bench player. Young is averaging 6.9 ppg this season but will add even more to Philly’s depth.

For the Grizzlies, this isn’t a big loss, but trading for a player taken in the second round in 2005 that is currently playing in another country doesn’t seem like a fantastic idea. There’s no word that Sanchez will be coming stateside anytime soon, so Memphis basically gave Young away.
