Nick Young Undecided On $5.7M Player Option With Lakers

MAR 31, 2017 2:18 PM

Nick Young might opt out of his $5.7 million player option for the 17-18 season after he rebuilt his value with the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Lakers considered using the stretch provision on Young last offseason, which seemed like a good idea at the time but would have been a mistake considering how well he's played.

Young is averaging 13.2 points on 40.4 percent shooting.

“I got a chance to play and show Nick Young again after going through everything I went through,” Young said. “That’s the best part of everything, being able to play. You think you won’t be in the league last year. Then you start 60 games.”

Young and his agent haven't decided what they'll do but he would prefer to stay with the Lakers.

“It’s L.A. I’m from here, family is here,” Young said. “I’ve been here for four years.”


MY NOTE: I have no opinion on whether Nick Young returning to the Lakers would be a good thing or a bad thing for them. Bob Heckler just doesn't like people who refer to themselves in the 3rd person. It instigates a reflex in Bob Heckler to punch them in the throat.
