Young said he felt like Pau Gasol this off season, with all the trade rumors circulating with his name attached. Heading into next season, Young expects a better working relationship with head coach Byron Scott.
“(Kupchak) says, I’m talented, but just work with coach,” Young said. “Work off of coach and make sure everybody is on the same page.”
On his new teammate, NBA Sixth Man of the Year Lou Williams joining the Lakers.
“I don’t want us fighting for every shot,” Young said. “Lou is my guy. It should be all right. No one can really guard anybody when we’re out there. You can’t leave me open. You can’t leave him open.”
Boston Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas dropped 50 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists in a Seattle, Pro-Am
