Sixers Extend Former Memphis High School Star

Former Mitchell High star Thaddeus Young continues to impress the Philadelphia 76ers.

Philly picks up the Third Year option on Young, the 12th overall pick in the 2007 Draft.

Young averaged more than 8-points, and 4-rebounds in 74 games last season.

Young, a former McDonald's All-American, left College after only one year at Georgia Tech for the NBA.
