The Los Angeles Lakers have started to make moves in free agency with Nick Young being the latest player to sign with the team, according to ESPN’s Jeff Goodman:

Young opted out of his deal with the Lakers heading into free agency and expressed a desire to stay with the team long-term. Although it was uncertain if the Lakers truly wanted one of the league’s best sixth men back for a higher price, the veteran guard/forward stayed confident things would get worked out.

As a result, the Lakers have re-signed Young to a four-year deal worth $21.5 million, according to David Aldridge of NBA.com:

Young was arguably the team’s best player last year outside of Pau Gasol. The journeyman came in and shouldered the scoring load for an injured Kobe Bryant by averaging a team-high 17.9 points per game.
