Philadelphia 76ers Reportedly Sign Nick Young and Amnesty Elton Brand
Nick Young has reached agreement on a deal with the 76ers, his agent says.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) July 6, 2012
The signing gives Philadelphia a replacement for Lou Williams, who seems to be on the way out after opting out of his current contract. The deal will reportedly be a one-year contract worth around $6 million, reports Marc Stein of ESPN.
Young also gives the 76ers offense something they greatly need. While he is not a go-to scorer, Young can shoot the ball very effectively, providing a spark off the bench. His play in the first round of the playoffs against the Memphis Grizzlies was a testament to those abilities.
In addition, Philly will also amnesty Elton Brand, taking almost $18 million off the books:
The 76ers have decided to use the amnesty clause on Elton Brand and the $18M left on final year of his deal, league sources tell Y! Sports.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) July 6, 2012
It looks like the 76ers might be making more moves before free agency and the offseason are over.
