Nick Young is definitely talented and he score like no tomorrow. But his basketball IQ is horrific, he's a terrible defender, and he can shoot you out of a game. Regardless, the Clippers needed to get someone because their bench is terrible and now Foye can go back to being a reserve.

say what you will about his defense, but Nick Young is a talented player that will bring more offense to the Clippers, and they got him by giving up Cook and a pick, thats a great move by the Clipps

This is a good pick up for the Clippers imo he's like the West coast JR Smith.

From playing with one of the worst teams to playing with one of the most exciting teams in the league AND in your hometown ... Young is gonna ball it up for the Clippers. [expletive].

He's a streaky, volume shooter. 40% from the field this season. He can help them just as much as he can hurt them

He will help the Clips, but some of their fans are saying they're better than the Lakers again with this trade.

That is insane. I've been watching Nick Young since he joined the league, and his stupidity and selfishness are unparalleled in this league. Even if Chris Paul magically transforms him into a team-first player who actually tries on the defensive end, he doesn't have the talent to push the Clips above the Lakers.
