Shooting guard Nick Young has officially signed with the Los Angeles Lakers. Young, who played last season with the Sixers, averaged 10.6 PPG, 1.4 APG, and 2.2 RPG. With the signing of former Laker Jordan Farmar, and now Young, the Lakers finally have some speed on the court. Something the club has been lacking in the past couple of years. Young is from Los Angeles and attended high school in the San Fernando Valley (Cleveland High School). He then went on to college at the University of Southern California. Young gives the Lakers some athleticism and is a shooter.
The Lakers tweeted a welcome to Nick Young:
