Nick “Swaggy P” Young is headed to San Francisco.
The former Los Angeles Lakers guard has signed with the Golden State Warriors according to ESPN.
Free agent guard Nick Young has agreed to a one-year, $5.2M deal with the Golden State Warriors, agent Mark Bartelstein tells ESPN.
Young averaged 13.2 points and 2.3 rebounds per game last season for the Lakers and joins the likes of Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Andre Iguodala, who all re-signed with the Warriors this offseason.
Golden State continues to try to lock up free agent center JaVale McGee but they may not have the money to do so. He reportedly set up a meeting with the Clippers Wednesday.
The Bengals’ bill was going to come due eventually, and it arrived last season: Things were already falling apart before A.J. Green’s injury. The implosion from years of risky signings didn’t deter Brown and Marvin Lewis from grabbing Joe Mixon in the draft, though. They need to get back into contention fast (which is a tall order in the AFC North) to justify continuing on this path.
Another impressive debut from a rookie general manager; the Lions were on track to win the NFC North before Matthew Stafford hurt his thumb late in the season. The fact that Quinn is still working with a coach he did not hire, Jim Caldwell, and who has not given him a reason to make a change, is worth watching this season, too. Meanwhile, Stafford is surely aware of Derek Carr’s new contract, so that’s something else on Quinn’s plate.
