Is Thad Young primed for a breakout season?

David Butler II-US PRESSWIRE

Philly.com Sports: Philadelphia 76ers forward Thaddeus Young has added 20 pounds of muscle to help when playing the power forward position. In addition, the longest tenured member of the Sixers has improved his mid-range shot. Is Young primed for a big year?

His shot, once above- average from 15-18 feet, had - by Young's admission - become suspect over the past couple of seasons. So during the offseason, before and after weightlifting sessions that severely swelled his upper body, Young shot jumper after jumper, knowing that consistently being able to hit the midrange shot might enable him to play some small forward as well this season.
