EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) - Free-agent guard Nick Young has signed a multiyear deal to stay with the Los Angeles Lakers.
General manager Mitch Kupchak on Monday described Young as a "bright spot" during last year's losing season. He says he's glad to keep someone committed to the rebuilding of the team.
Young averaged a career-high 17.9 points in his first season with the Lakers playing mostly off the bench. He started nine of 64 games. Young led the NBA in four-point plays with seven, a team record.
