The San Antonio Spurs rounded out their roster earlier this week when they signed free agent forward Sam Young. Spurs fans had mixed reactions to the signing but all-in-all, fans seem to like the addition of Young.
He is an energy-type player and will surely get fans to get up off their seats.
And for those fans who have welcomed Sam to the team, he is glad to be a Spur and sent his appreciation to Spurs fans across the globe.
Thanks to all the Spurs fans that welcome me, glad to be here.

Granted this may be a training camp signing and it remains to be seen if Young will be on the roster come opening night. Also, keep in mind this was for the 15th roster spot and there's no word if his deal was guaranteed.
He is 6"6', 220 lbs., 28-years old and has NBA career averages of 5.8 points, 2.3 rebounds and shot 44 percent. Young averaged 2.8 points and 2.2 rebounds last season with the Indiana Pacers off the bench and is a solid defender.
