Thaddeus Young Free Agency: Philadelphia 76ers, Young Reach Deal, According To Report

The Philadelphia 76ers have reached a deal to keep free agent forward Thaddeus Young, according to a report (via Adrian Wojnarowski's Twitter). Kate Fagan confirmed (via Twitter) the report that Young and the 76ers have reached a deal worth $42/5 years.

As a restricted free agent, the Sixers would have been allowed to try to match an offer sheet that Young could have received from another team. The organization had said previously that they would match any "reasonable offer" (via Philly.com). Now that Philadelphia has reached a deal with Young, he can get to training camp, which began earlier today.

Young averaged 12.7 points and 5.3 rebounds per game in 2010-2011. Young comes off the bench frequently (he played all 82 regular season games last season, but had only one start) as a wing player for the 76ers.
