Default Sam Young happy to join 76ers

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports:

Sam Young took a long journey to Philadelphia - literally. Acquired on Thursday from the Memphis Grizzlies, the 6-foot-6, 220-pound swingman was in uniform for Friday's game at the Wells Fargo Center against the Miami Heat, but not before an eventful 24 hours.

Shortly after the trade, he drove from Memphis to Washington, where he picked up some belongings and then came to Philadelphia.

The distance from Memphis to Washington is about 875 miles.

"It was good because I got a lot of time to think and reflect and think about what I have been through the last couple of months and where I was headed to," Young said before Friday's game.

Young certainly likes his new destination.

"When I sat and thought about it, I thought it was a perfect fit, the style of play, hard-nosed basketball, coach, the organization," Young said. "I am happy to be here and couldn't wait to get here when I was on the road."
