Nick Young To Play Small Forward

With the departure of Metta World Peace the Lakers plan to use their new acquisition Nick Young at the small forward. This means Young will get to start and get more playing time. The Lakers orginization tweeted out "Kupchak on Young: "We think there's a lot of playing time here for him if he works hard. We see him playing at the small forward position." (Via Twitter). Young is more acustomed to coming off the bench rather then starting. Last year, Young played for the Philadelphia 76ers in a reserve role where he averaged, 10.6 points, 2.2 rebounds and 23.9 minutes per game. Nick Young is back to where it all started. He played college basketball for USC. Young will also wear the jersey #0.
