VIDEO: Nick Young ‘Confident’ On Reaching Agreement To Remain A Laker


There’s very little from the Los Angeles Lakers 2013-2014 season that Lakers fans would like to keep, but fan favorite Nick “Swaggy P” Young is the exception. Young’s welcoming smile and uplifting energy has found its way into the hearts of fans, during one of the worst seasons in franchise history.

Plus, Swaggy P has been the Lakers spark off the bench, averaging 18.4 points per game, ranking him first in the NBA for points per game among players who have come off the bench 20 or more times.

Nick Young has a player option on his contract with the Lakers next season for a little over 1.2 million dollars. After such an efficient season, Young has upped his market value to well over the amount on his player option. Thus, it’s highly likely that Young will make the smart business decision and choose to opt-out of his contract next season, but that does not mean he wants to leave Los Angeles.

As a matter of fact, Young made it clear that his first choice is to remain in LA and both hopes and has confidence the he can reach an agreement with the Lakers front office for next season. Young also said he would love to finish his career as a Laker and is a player that can handle the spotlight of LA.

“There’s a lot of pressure but you have to be able to handle that and some people can’t but I think I’m one of those guys that can.”

The 28-year old guard also said it’s important for players to feel the love of the fans and the city, and he definitely feels that.

“This is home,” Nick Young smiled, and he’d like to keep it that way.
