Lakers Still Actively Shopping Nick Young

Lakers Still Actively Shopping Nick Young

He traveled to Rio as part of China's Olympic team, averaging 20.4 points per game.

Even after Harris left China and returned to coaching in the National Basketball Association, he remained close with Yi, who was the No. 6 overall pick in the 2007 draft. Meanwhile, there are also reports that Young's performance has gone significantly down since last season and has also been on bench several times due to lack of focus. For now, Lakers are doing their best to find a profitable deal for their seasoned guard, but no team has come forth with an interest to place Young on their roster.

Young has spent the last three seasons with the Lakers but has not helped the team move forward despite the lofty expectations set on him.

He began his career there when he was just 15 and has since compiled a decorated resume that includes eight All-Star selections, four championships, two Domestic MVPs and two Finals MVPs.

Nevertheless, Ingram comes to southern California after having scored 17.2 points per game and grabbing 6.8 rebounds per night with the Blue Devils.

Yi is a former first-round draft pick of the Milwaukee Bucks in 2007. The former Golden State Warriors assistant head coach is viewed as someone that is still young enough to relate to players of this generation. Four years later, he led the London Olympics in rebounding (10.2) and placed second in blocks (2.2) during a brief run that included a 30-point, 12-rebound outburst in a loss to Spain.

Henry participated in the Lakers' free agent mini-camp earlier in the week and was able to draw the attention of general manager Mitch Kupchak.

Young is reportedly talking it out with Russell and the team, but as per the trade rumors, restoring the friendship won't cut it as the Lakers are already resolute on letting go of the 31-year-old.

As evidence, Harris pointed to Yi's average of almost 15 points and seven rebounds per game in January 2010 with the New Jersey Nets when Harris was the team's assistant coach.
