He also spent time this spring playing for Criollos de Caguas in Puerto Rico. Young is known as an explosive scorer and a strong defender. Last season he averaged 19 points 3.9 rebounds and 2 steals for Sassari in the Italian second division. He also spent time in semi-professional American leagues like the WBA and the NBDL after playing college basketball at Xavier and North Carolina Central.
