Thaddeus Young has only been in the league for seven years, but in 76ers years, he’s a grizzled NBA veteran. Young has harped in recent days about all the losing the young 76ers have done, and how it’s wearing on him.
According to Philly.com, Young formally requested a trade from the 76ers in writing.
Young and his agent, Jim Tanner, submitted a formal trade request to Hinkie and the Sixers weeks ago, according to a source close to Young.
“Thad is ready to leave Philly,” the source said. “He isn’t with the whole tanking thing.” The Sixers are currently last in the Atlantic Division at 7-19.
Young reportedly grew excited about the rumors of him potentially moving to Houston or elsewhere for Omer Asik. That deal fell through of course with Houston pulling Asik off the market.
