The 15th Man: 6 Ideas For The Last Spot


Sam Young

Sam Young is one of the non-guaranteed players that got the pre-January 10th axe, but it wasn’t long ago that Young was a productive member of the Memphis Grizzlies. A second-round draft pick in 2009, Young stumbled his way into the starting lineup for 46 games in his sophomore season, shooting a respectable 48% from the floor and 12-30 from deep as a starter.

After leaving Memphis, Young didn’t get a grip on a rotation spot in small stints in Philadelphia and Indiana, but he fills a role the Nets could use some help at: mitigating a few minutes at the swingman spot.
