Thaddeus Young is reportedly exploring the option of playing overseas in the Chinese League.

With Lavoy Allen, Nikola Vucevic, and Craig Brackins already signing overseas (with Strasbourg IGKK Buducnost Podgorica, and Maccabi Ashdod, rspectively), Thaddeus Young appears to be the latest Sixers exploring his overseas options, according to HoopsHype.

From the HoopsHype Report (from Jim Tanner, agent with Williams & Connolly):

"I have discussed this with Thad and he is intrigued by the possibility of playing in China if the lockout continues and has asked me to further explore these opportunities. At this point, our conversations with the teams have been preliminary but we are continuing to talk and to do our due diligence on each option."

Young averaged averaged 12.7 points to go along with 5.3 rebounds in 26 minutes per game, and finished 3rd in 6th man of the year voting.
