Once the 2014-15 NBA season was officially over for the Los Angeles Lakers, a rumor started to circulate about Nick Young’s future with the team. Apparently, according to the rumor, the team will explore options to trade the veteran journeyman during the offseason.
Although Young’s future in Los Angeles remains uncertain, the 29-year-old isn’t letting the rumor bother him or at least that’s how it appeared at a local gym recently.
Young was seen a local gym playing some pick-up basketball. Not only was Young back on the court after dealing with a nagging knee injury toward the end of the regular season, but for some reason he was wearing a ski mask while playing, via Twitter:

With the Lakers looking to make some major changes to the roster this summer, there’s no telling where Young might end up before next season. The veteran guard/forward still has some value and may be a tradable asset, but it isn’t set in stone that the Lakers will actually pursue a trade.
In the meantime, expect more of the same from Young throughout the offseason until his fate with the team is determined.
