Sam Young
Homenetmen Beirut (Pepsi LBL) added to their roster 32-year old American swingman Sam Young (198-100kg-85, college: Pittsburgh). He played last season at Ahli Shabab in UAE D1 league.
The previous (2016) summer Young was tested by Guizhou in Chinese NBL where in three games he recorded very impressive stats: 25.3ppg, 5.3rpg and 1.3apg in 2016 season.
In 2009 he was drafted by Memphis Grizzlies (NBA) in second round (36th overall). Young attended University of Pittsburgh and it will be his ninth season in pro basketball.
The list of the past achievements is quite long as among others his team won UAE Federation Cup for two years in a row (2015 and 2016). Young was also voted Asia-Basket.com All-FIBA Asia Champions Cup 1st Team in 2016.
He is quite experienced player. Thanks to Young's pro career he managed to play on five different continents (Europe, Asia, Latin America, Australia and of course North America) in seven different countries. Young has played previously professionally in Australia (Kings), Italy (Juvecaserta), Mexico (Halcones UV Xalapa), Puerto Rico (Vaqueros), Turkey (Usak Sportlif), NBA (Phi.76ers, San Antonio Spurs and Indiana Pacers) and Dominican Republic (Caneros de La Romana and San Sebastian).
The scouts decsribe him following way: Sam Young is a talented, gritty scorer and rebounder who displays outstanding competitiveness. Young has a good understanding of the game and fits perfectly into any team system. Young has showed his athleticism with spectacular dunks, thundering rebounds and surprising blocks. A power forward, Young can score inside or outside, is super athletic, plays good defense and gets up on the glass.
