THADDEUS YOUNG ANNOUNCES NUMBER FOR UPCOMING SEASON
Philadelphia 76ers rookie Thaddeus Young will wear number 21 this season, after fans registered over 11,000 votes during an online poll at Sixers.com.

Young will become the 11th player in Sixers history to wear the number and the first player to do so since the 2005-06 season. Among those who have worn the number include Larry Costello (1963-65, 1966-68), Sixers Director of Player Development World B. Free (1975-78) and Matt Harpring (2001-02).

I think it's possible for him to be an immediate factor with his athleticism, but his overall game will need to be built before he becomes an intimidating factor on offense.

No way he is an immediate factor. Young's name speaks alone: he has long ways to go.

Raw athleticism and basketball instincts that need fundamentals and BBall IQ to go on par. Which is good, because Philly is rebuilding anyway, so he can be given the time to develop.
