Nick Young Signs 1-Year Contract With Philadelphia 76ers, According To Report

Needing perimeter scoring, the Philadelphia 76ers have signed former Washington Wizards and Los Angeles Clippers guard Nick Young, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski. The contract will be for one year and about $6 million, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

Young split time with the Wizards and Clippers last year, averaging 14.2 points per game on 40 percent shooting. He had some moments in the Clippers' playoff run, including a barrage of three-pointers to help the Clippers come back from a 27-point deficit in Game 1 of their first-round series against the Memphis Grizzlies. Young can be a bit trigger-happy with his shot, but reports indicate that Doug Collins, despite his reputation for not faring well with players like Young, was the one behind this move.

Young was a restricted free agent last year, but eventually settled for the $3.7 million qualifying offer when the Wizards weren't willing to meet his asking price on a long-term contract.
