Sixers' Young could play in China

Thaddeus Young
Sixers restricted free agent forward Thaddeus Young could be on his way to China.

Young's agent,  Jim Tanner, told HoopsHype, Young has been drawing plenty of attention from several clubs in the Chinese Basketball Association.

“I have been contacted by multiple teams in China expressing very serious interest in having Thaddeus Young play in their league this season,” Tanner told the website. “I have discussed this with Thad and he is intrigued by the possibility of playing in China if the lockout continues and has asked me to further explore these opportunities. At this point, our conversations with the teams have been preliminary but we are continuing to talk and to do our due diligence on each option.”

Young averaged 12.7 ppg and 5.3 rpg with the Sixers last season.
