EA7 Milan fortifies frontline with Young

EA7 Emporio Armani Milan fortified its frontline by signing center Patric Young, who arrives from Olympiacos Piraeus. The contract is for two seasons. Young (2.09 meters, 25 years old) spent two seasons with the Reds, but his time there was plagued by injuries. He first suffered a season-ending knee injury in Round 5 of the 2015-16 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague season and missed time again last season, but still helped the Reds reach the championship game where they lost to Fenerbahce Istanbul. Young averaged 2.7 points and 2.4 rebounds in a limited role last season in EuroLeague and 5.0 points and 2.9 rebounds in Greek League action. Young made his EuroLeague debut with Galatasaray Odeabank Istanbul in 2014, when he posted 8.7 points and 6.4 rebounds. Young is now set for his fourth EuroLeague season with his third team. He joins guards Dairis Bertans and Andrew Goudelock and forwards Amath M'Baye and Vlado Micov, all of whom were announced on Monday, as the club's newest players.
