Thaddeus Young, Sixers Working On Deal, According To Report

Thaddeus Young and the Philadelphia 76ers are working on a contract to keep the young forward in the City of Brotherly Love, reports Kate Fagan of the Philadelphia Inquirer. While terms are still being hammered out, Fagan reports that Young is opposed to letting his restricted free agency linger and cut into valuable training camp time before the Sixers' season opens on December 26.

NBA free agency officially opened at 2 p.m. ET on Friday. Teams were allowed to discuss contracts with free agents before then, but the league told teams not to make specific offers or agreements. (That seemed to stop exactly no one.)

Young served as a combo forward off the bench for Sixers coach Doug Collins last season, and became a legitimate candidate for Sixth Man of the Year. At just 23 years old, he served as one of the most intriguing prospects in the 2011 free agent class.
