NBA Free Agency 2011: 76ers' Thaddeus Young In Conversation With Nuggets, According To Report

Philadelphia 76ers forward Thaddeus Young has had a conversation with the Nuggets

Philadelphia 76ers restricted free agent forward Thaddeus Young is a sought after wing player this offseason.

The 76ers would love to keep Young whom they mostly used off the bench last season. Philadelphia has already said they will match any 'reasonable' offer for Young (via Philly.com). Could that offer come from the Denver Nuggets? The Nuggets have apparently already gotten in contact with Young:

"Good conversation" today between #Nuggets and RFA Thaddeus Young, and more conversations planned, source says. (via Ken Berg's Twitter)

Young was a first-round pick (12th overall) by the 76ers in 2007. He averaged 12.7 points and 5.3 rebounds per game in 2010-2011 in 26 minutes per game. He played all 82 games but only started in one game. In five playoff games last season, Young averaged 11.4 points per game and 5.8 rebounds per game 25.4 minutes per game.
