Spurs Sign Sam Young

September 25 2013 at 6:17pm CST By Alex Lee

The Spurs have reached a contract agreement with free agent Sam Young, reports Shams Charania of RealGM, citing a league source.  We haven't heard much about Young's eventual destination this offseason, but the silver and black of San Antonio seems like a pretty good fit for the defensive-minded Pittsburgh alum. Charania reports that the Kings and Knicks also kicked the tires on the 6-foot-6 swingman.

After being drafted 36th overall by Memphis in 2009, Young was traded to Philadelphia in 2012 and then latched on with the Pacers last year.  Young was cut in early January last year by the Pacers in a strategic roster move, but was re-signed to the team less than a month later.  He's averaged 5.8 points and 15.9 minutes per game over his four-year career, but is better known for his defensive intangibles than his statistical production.
