Lakers Will Try to Trade Nick Young This Summer: Report

Nick Young

Things aren't going well for Nick Young.

Following the scandal with rookie teammate D'Angelo Russell, word is the Los Angeles Lakers are hoping to trade Swaggy P this summer... not their rookie guard.

According to Los Angeles Times reporter Mike Bresnahan, the team has "tried to trade Young, 30, each of the last two seasons as his production dropped." However, they've been unable to find a team interested.

"They will likely try to find a home for him again this off-season, which won't be easy with a player who didn't even get off the bench in eight games last month," Bresnahhan wrote.

There's been no confirmation from the Lakers, however, as they try to repair team chemistry for next season... following Russell's fallout with the rest of the team.
