This summer, Lou Williams became a free agent after spending seven seasons with the Sixers.

Negotiations with the only team for which he ever played didn't pan out. Williams signed with the Hawks, and coach Doug Collins had to move quickly to find someone to replace the team's leading scorer.

Collins reached out to Nick Young, a five-year veteran who, for his career, has averaged 11.4 points, shooting 43 percent from the floor, 38 percent from three-point range. Like Williams, Young was a free agent.
