Default 2012 Trade Deadline deal: Grizzlies trade Sam Young to 76ers

CONFIRMED: http://www.insidehoops.com/blog/?p=9434

It's being reported by multiple Philly and Memphis sources that Sam Young has been traded to Philly for a 2nd round pick. It would be interesting if it's the same pick the Grizzlies send to Philly for Speights earlier this year haha.

With Turner starting supposedly Philly wanted some bigger wings off the bench. Young is very strong and a good rebounder, killer pump fake, has a decent midrange and knows how to finish but he takes ill advised shots and forces things. He also hasn't developed anything new from the time he was drafted in 2009 and seems to be out of place on defense more often than not. Because of that, he hasn't played a ton this year and guys like Quincy Pondexter have all his minutes. He did play pretty well starting against the Lakers on Tuesday though.

Trading Sam gets the Grizzlies below the Luxury Tax line, which has been their plan all along. However, the recent interest in Arenas is confusing because I think his vet min contract will put them back over.

Makes sense. Philly helped them out with Speights when ZBO went down.

It was being reported it was for a 2nd round pick but now I just read through the Commercial Appeal (Memphis big paper) that it is for the rights to Ricky Sanchez who was drafted in 2005? So I'm guessing it was just a salary dump then like I figured.

This move really makes all of the drama we had to endure in the last several months worthwhile!

Memphis just lost some defense for pretty much nothing.

What the ****? He just started for them against the Lakers. I know it was due to injury, but doesn't that just mean he's one of the first off the bench?

Not even close. He has so man DNP-CD this year. Hollins didn't want to mess up the bench rotations the way they had them and Young is strong enough to match up with Artest so he just started him. Young had already asked for a trade since he wasn't ever playing so this gave him a chance to prove to the Grizzlies and other teams what he could do. Again, Hollins is big on growth and knowing where you are supposed to be on defense and how to space the floor and Sam was not on the level of the other wing player when it came to that. He's not a bad player at all, just fell out of the rotation.

Trading the rights of a 2005 second round pick.

How is that legal?
