Lakers’ Nick Young Understands Move to Bench


After having a resurgent season full of productivity and joy, Nick Young will return to a spot that had sparked frustration in past seasons.

Young will face reduced playing time off the bench.

“It’s nothing. It’s that time of year you want to check out the young guys and evaluate them,” Young said. “I understand that. It’s nothing personal. It’s not like he’s doing some crazy stuff. It wasn’t like other years before.”
