Lakers’ Young on Luke Walton: ‘Breath of Fresh Air’

on

Young sounded uncertain whether the Lakers will buy out his two-year contract worth $11 million before training camp starts in late September. Young indirectly outlined reasons for the Lakers to consider giving him another chance. After clashing the past two seasons with then-Lakers coach Byron Scott about his public criticisms and role, Young sounded thrilled about Luke Walton’s subsequent hiring.

“It’s a breath of fresh air for me,” Young said of Walton, who spent the past two seasons as a Golden State Warriors assistant. “Luke is a big-time coach and came from a championship team. I think I have the tools that we can use as a shooter.”
