On Young: 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.
