Young became a fan favorite and was one of the few bright spots from this past season. He undoubtedly earned himself more money this off-season, and is still willing to take a discount to play for the Lakers moving forward. But according to the LA Daily News’ Mark Medina, there is something else that Young wants solved if he is to return to LA:

This is a direct contrast to what some people believe is behind the Lakers thinking as some have reported that the Lakers may want to talk to free agents and see who they may like as a head coach. But Young makes a good point.

A player would want to sign with a team where he knows what style they play and what his role would be. It is impossible to know that if a team has no coach.

Byron Scott has been looked at as a favorite since Mike D’Antoni resigned, but nothing is for sure at this time. As Young enters the prime of his career, he wants to play for a team and coach that will maximize his talents. Right now, there is no way to know if Los Angeles is that place.
