Thaddeus Young has requested a trade from the Philadelphia 76ers.
Young and his agent, Jim Tanner, submitted a trade request to Sam Hinkie and the Sixers weeks ago, according to a source close to Young.
"Thad is ready to leave Philly," the source said. "He isn't with the whole tanking thing."
Young was excited about the possibility of being traded to the Houston Rockets in a deal for Omer Asik before talks broke apart.
