411 on Nets:  Thaddeus Young is making his second trip to the Wells Fargo as a member of a visiting team on Saturday. But this will be his first one with the Brooklyn Nets.

The Nets acquired Young in a trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves last month. That move came after the Sixers traded him to Minnesota in exchange for Luc Mbah a Moute, Alexey Shved and a first-round pick. The 6-foot-8 power forward was the 12th overall pick by the Sixers in the 2007 NBA draft. He scored 7,078 points in 15,516 minutes played with the Sixers. He had 10 points and seven rebounds with the Timberwolves in his first trip back to Well Fargo on Jan. 30.
