The Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to terms with Free Agent Nick Young, with a deal for 1 year worth the veterans minimum, to be worth 1.2 million dollars.
Nick is a Los Angeles Native who went to Cleveland High School in Reseda, he will be reunited with Jordan Farmar who went to Taft High School, a rival school. Nick then took his talents to the University Of Southern California. He was drafted by the Wizards and bounced around from the Clippers to the 76ers, now he’s home, The Los Angeles Lakers. This was a steal for the Lakers organization and it’s fans.
It was extremly suprising to see Nick Young last this long during free agency with a player of his talent. His best seasons were with Washington Wizards averaging 17 and 16 points per game in back to back seasons. Laker Nation is excited and so is he,

Nick is a tremendous offensive weapon, he can shoot and more importantly attack the rim. Coach Mike D’ Antoni will find a way to utilize his athleticism by slashing and coming off screens. More importantly, I could see Nick coming off the bench for Kobe and giving him that much needed rest.
Playing behind Kobe Brant will most definitely help Nick out in his 8th season in the NBA. Laker fans, Laker Nation get ready for highlight plays and electrifying dunks from MR. Nick “Swaggy P” Young.
