Originally written February 20, 2014 on Lakerholicz.com:
Nick Young is so swaggy that he checks his phone (and possibly Woj’s timeline) on the bench during games. Last night, during the Lakers-Rockets game, Young was caught checking his phone by ESPN cameras, presumably so he could keep up to date with all the latest trade rumors, and maybe even because he was worried about his own future with the team. You can hardly blame Swaggy P for doing this, though, seeing as his teammate Steve Blake was traded to the Golden State Warriors just over an hour before tip-off on Wednesday night. At the time, it seemed as if another member of the purple and gold could be traded any minute. Young is probably safe, though, seeing as the team signed him with the intention for this to be a multi-year relationship. The L.A. native can opt-out of his deal this summer, however, Mitch Kupchak has indicated that he’d like to keep the scorer in the purple and gold for many years to come.
