When the Lakers signed Lou Williams to add to a rotation that already includes Nick Young, Kobe Bryant, Jordan Clarkson and whoever else the Lakers put on their roster in the backcourt, most thought that might be the end of Swaggy P’s time in Los Angeles.
As recently as last week reports said the Lakers might be ready to unload Young. But according to Bill Oram of the OC Register, the Lakers shopped Young a little bit back when they needed cap space for a potential LaMarcus Aldridge signing, but with that fantasy in the rearview, LA has “no plans” to deal Swaggy.
Heard today Lakers have no plans to trade Nick Young. Called around seeking suitors so they could clear cap room quickly. Didn't materialize
