   Chinese Basketball Association Imports, 2010/11, Again

David Young - 13 games, 33.1 mpg, 22.2 ppg, 4.9 rpg, 1.6 apg, 0.8 spg, 0.0 bpg, 2.7 TOpg, 42% FG, 27% 3PT, 82% FT

Jilin opened the season with Young and Watkins, a seasoned veteran of the Chinese dance. The now-33 year old Watkins's 13.3 rebounds were good for 6th in the league, and an improvement on his 16/10 numbers from last season. Former Sonics pick Young was, as ever, getting to the basket, averaging 8 free throws a game. But his impression of an undersized Corey Maggette didn't sit well with the team, and they looked to replace him for a while, eventually settling on Tim Pickett. Pickett had started the season with Israeli team Ironi Ashkelon, averaging 10.4 points in 7 games, but was released after being caught in possession of marijuana. He later returned to China where, once again, he ended up winning games single-handedly for one of the league's lesser teams.

   Where Are They Now, 2010; The 75th And Final Part

- David Young

Young started this season in the Italian second division, where he averaged 14.0 points and 0.5 assists per game for Scafati Basket. He then moved to Hungary, but not for very long, and in February he moved to Greece to play for A1 team Trikalla. This was probably the best career move Young has made since being drafted, as he went on to average 20.5 points per game, leading the league in scoring. He got to the line 9 times a game and hit 85% of them, and while he shot only 41% overall due to his ever-sketchy outside jumpshot, Young's points per game totals were still impressive. It wasn't enough to save Trikalla from relegation, but it's good for Young's CV.
