According to head coach Byron Scott, Nick Young will have to improve this summer or it will be "hard" to give him minutes.
Scott said that Young must improve his movement off the ball on offense, his ability to attack the basket, and that he needs to become a better help defender. Injuries limited Young to just 42 games this season, but he struggled mightily when he did take the floor. Swaggy P shot just 36.6 percent from the field over the course of the season, and he was heavily criticized by Scott for taking poor shots and a lack of effort on defense. The Lakers have big plans this summer, so it will be interesting to see what kind of role Young will have next season. May 17 - 10:09 AM
