The Grizzlies were stunned to see 24-year old small forward Sam Young available to them at the #36 pick of the NBA Draft last night. Young played in 143 games in four seasons at Pitt and he averaged 13.2 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.0 assist per game. Young improved every season at Pitt and there’s plenty of reasons to believe that he hasn’t played his best basketball quite yet. Young will be a backup this season but I wouldn’t be surprised if he earns a starting job for the Grizzlies in the very near future. This was a outstanding pick for the Grizzlies who had a fine draft.
