Nick Young sucked last season. And that’s not just us saying that. You can look at his numbers for proof. He only started two games for the 17-65 Lakers and averaged less than 20 minutes per night. He also scored a career-worst 7.3 points per game while averaging a career-worst .339 field goal percentage. And top of all that, he had issues with head coach Byron Scott, issues with now former fiancée Iggy Azalea, and issues with rookie teammate D’Angelo Russell (as you’re probably well aware, the latter two issues were related). It led many people to assume that the Lakers would part ways with Swaggy P in the offseason, and there was even some speculation that he might be out of the NBA altogether because of how bad he was last season.
