According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, Nick Young has reached an agreement to play for the Philadelphia 76ers next season:

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:

Look for the 76ers to be players in next season's free-agent market, where Chris Paul, Dwight Howard, James Harden, Andrew Bynum and Serge Ibaka will all be available.

It looks like the 76ers might be making more moves before free agency and the offseason are over.
