Ken Berger of CBSSports.com confirms multiple reports including Yahoo and ESPN confirm through Nick Young's agent that he has agreed to an offer sheet with the Philadelphia 76ers on a one-year deal worth $6 million.
It wasn't a four-year, $30 million deal? No massive contract size? No excessive length on the contract? A reasonable contract for a bench scorer who can help himself into a better contract with a good year in a featured role and no long-term committment?
Is this still the NBA?
This is a sweetheart deal for the Sixers. They get a bench scorer with considerably more scoring potential than last year's bench scorer Lou Williams to hit shots, and Young's a superior defender. Young is 27, but likely still has several good years in front of him. He's a versatile scorer who can get up and out in transition and on several nights will light up the scoreboard.
This is a great move by Philadelphia, assuming the don't re-sign Lou Williams to a long-term deal. This gives them flexibility and allows them to fill their bench scoring position.
