Nick Young jokingly revealed on Twitter the search is over as he will volunteer to coach the Lakers next season:


If the Lakers want to make a splash with the search, Young provides a humorous opportunity. While Young doesn’t have the experience some of the other candidates may have, he’s up for the job. He’s got a Lakers background but not nearly like that of coaching candidates, like Byron Scott.

Of course, Young has an important decision of his own to make this off-season. All signs indicate he will opt out of his player option and become a free agent. During the 2013-14 season, Young led the Lakers in scoring, averaging 17.9 points per game.

Unfortunately for Young, the Lakers will be looking elsewhere. Scott, George Karl, and Kevin Ollie are just a few of the over ten candidates for the job. The Lakers search will continue over the next couple weeks and hope to get the Lakers back to their winning ways.

    Its really simple lol. Either hire Mark Jackson or Byron Scott. Lionel Hollins would be my close 3rd option. I honestly have no idea why the management is bothering with people like George Karl (basically a better version of Mike NO D) or all those UNTESTED College coaches. Hell man you got Mark who’s consistently overachieved in the playoffs with an underdog team (this year they were MUCH worse roster wise than the Clippers – didn’t have their top 2 centres) and you’ve got Byron who has a great history with the Lakers (Lionel Hollins is in here just because i want to see some damn defense).

    UPDATE: Heading into the next season as the new head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, Nick Young has already begun implementing his own philosophy: If you look good, you play good. Starting with an innovative approach known as the “Swaggy Policy,” this new policy states the following:

    - All players are expected to wear unique fashionable attire. All attire must be approved by Swaggy P himself before departure for opening night. Once players have gained the approval, they will be entrusted with the task of continuing to meet the policy’s expectations. Failure to follow through with this demand on several occasions will be considered as insubordination and will result in the reduction of playing time. Continuation of such defiance will not be tolerated and the head coach will request the player to be traded. If the trade fails, the player will be sidelined for the remainder of the season.
    *NOTE: This policy is subject to change at any given time by the head coach*

    Nick Young claims his reasoning behind this policy is due to the belief that “[f]ashion plays a huge role in helping one discover self-confidence.” Young goes on saying “…the lack of self-confidence is reflected in their poor performances and that’s why I want to do something that will help boost their morale.” Many of the personnel around the NBA league have already begun to question his credentials for the head coaching job, but Swaggy P has quickly responded to the criticism by saying that “…[his] swag is not to be taken lightly.” Although Swaggy P’s new occupation has generated more confusion than his nickname itself, it remains to be seen whether or not the swaggy phenom can bring the franchise back to its glorified days.
