Young signed a two-year deal that will guarantee him nearly $3 million, and Pecherov, the 18th overall pick in 2006, signed a two-year deal that ensures him nearly $2.7 million. The Wizards hold options for two additional years on Pecherov.
Young, a 6-foot-7 guard-forward, was the 16th overall pick in last week's draft out of Southern California. Pecherov, a 7-foot center, played last season in his native Ukraine.
``Both have good size, athleticism and the ability to score,'' Wizards president Ernie Grunfeld said. ``They are hardworking and competitive young players.''
