Re: Nick Young a Clipper
Los Angeles Times reports:
The three-team deal was completed when the Clippers got Young from the Wizards and sent Brian Cook and a 2015 second-round pick to Washington. The Clippers were able to fit Young into their $3.8-million trade exception they got for trading Eric Gordon to New Orleans in the Chris Paul deal.
The Wizards got center Nene from the Denver Nuggets for Wizards center JaVale McGee and forward Ronny Turiaf.
Young, known to be a scorer, was averaging 16.6 points a game for the Wizards this season, and he has a career average of 11.6 points over four seasons. He was shooting 40.6% from the field, 37.1% from three-point range, this season.
Young started the first 32 games for Washington but was coming off the bench the last eight because of a falling-out with Wizards Coach Randy Wittman. Young will start for the Clippers
