The 76ers are in the process of negotiating a deal to bring back forward Thaddeus Young.

Young is a restricted free agent, meaning he can sign an offer sheet with another team, which the Sixers would then have three days to match.

But instead of waiting for another team's offer sheet, the two sides have moved together to try to get a deal done and get Young into training camp.

Nothing is set yet, but it's movement in the right direction for the Sixers, who have said repeatedly that their No. 1 priority this off-season is bringing back Young.
