Nocioni played just 4 minutes this month, and the arrival of Sam Young makes the buy-out no surprise. From CSNPhilly: “According to a source, the Sixers bought out the contract of Andres Nocioni Friday night. One day earlier, they had acquired 6-foot-6 wing player Sam Young in a trade with Memphis that virtually made Nocioni a spectator from here on out, which had been his role for most of this season leading up to buyout. The move gives Nocioni the freedom to pursue finding a team that might want him for the home stretch of this condensed season or allow him to return to his beloved home country of Argentina.”
