Nick Young On #STAYSWAG Campaign: ‘The Fans Love Me’
[new_royalslider id=”283″]

Nick Young became one of the most beloved Lakers on last season’s team thanks to his innate scoring ability, and infectious personality.

With Young officially opting out of his contract with the Lakers, there has been a swell of support to keep Young in Los Angeles, most notably with Lakers Nation’s #StaySWAG campaign.

The L.A. Daily News’ Mark Medina recently asked Young about the campaign and he was thankful to the fans who contributed:

Growing up a Lakers fan, Young understands the history of the team, and the passion that the fans have. He embraces the spotlight of Los Angeles, and shines under pressure, something that many others have folded under with the Lakers.

He has earned a bigger contract due to his play last year, and general manager Mitch Kupchak is hopeful that the Lakers will be able to bring him back, but that will all depend on how much money other teams will offer Young.

The Lakers are very adamant about maintaining their cap flexibility for next season and paying Young more than what they believe he is worth is unlikely to happen. Young indicated that he would take a pay cut to stay with the team, a good sign for Young fans.

If this does wind up being Young’s final season in Los Angeles, it was a fun ride, but the fans have clearly spoken as they are looking forward to Swaggy P being around for a long time.
