Free agent guard Nick Young has reached an agreement with the Philadelphia 76ers, reports ESPN's Marc Stein on Twitter.



Young spent most of his first five seasons in the NBA with the Washington Wizards, but he was traded to the Los Angeles Clippers during last season. His numbers dropped sharply as his playing time fell, but Young played well at times during the postseason.

His best season came in 2010-11 when he averaged 17.4 points per game. The Clippers agreed to terms with veteran guard Jamal Crawford on Thursday, making Young expendable.
