Sam Young will head to the 76ers in exchange for a second round pick, according to a report.

With the trade deadline some four hours away, the Philadelphia 76ers have made a minor move to acquire reserve forward Sam Young from the Memphis Grizzlies, according to a report. In exchange, Philadelphia will send Memphis a second-round draft pick.

Young, originally the 36th pick in the 2009 draft by Memphis, is in the final year of a three-year contract and will become a restricted free agent this summer. He was a first team All Big East performer during his senior year at Pittsburgh, where he starred for the Panthers.

Despite being in just his third NBA season, Young brings some playoff starting experience, having started 11 of the Grizzlies 2011 playoff games. He should provide depth and both offensive and defensive punch for Doug Collins, who has been forced to work with a slimmer bench because of recent injuries.
