New York Knicks v Los Angeles Lakers

Report: Nick Young signing four-year, $21.5 million contract with Lakers


The Lakers trading for Jeremy Lin signaled they knew they were out of contention for Carmelo Anthony.

Without adding a star to play with Kobe Bryant, the Lakers are headed toward another lost season.

At least, this time, they should be more entertaining.

Kobe and Lin are draws, and so is Nick Young, a native Angelino who wanted to stay with his hometown team.

Shams Charania of RealGM:

Lin, Young, Kobe, Julius Randle and – if they somehow convince him to stay – Pau Gasol make a really intriguing lineup.

Not due to basketball. That team has almost no chance of making the playoffs in the West.

But the Lakers are full of personality, and that should sell tickets. Don’t underestimate what Young brings to the table. Based on what happened last year, I’m really hoping we get more of Young:

Bradley Beal drives around, dunks over Kristaps Porzingis (VIDEO)

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
