    Lakers were looking to dump Nick Young and Young preferred Houston. MDA pushed for it, but Morey denied.

    Just some info I wanted to share.

    Hope everyone is doing well! This new layout has me confused.

    Don't like Nick Young. Has talent, but a 10 cent brain. Could wreck the chemistry that the team worked hard to re-build.

    Morey made the right decision.

    Was this offered before Eric Gordon was signed or just recently?

    Young would have been fine off the bench.

    Only would have made sense to dump Brewer, but doubt Lakers go for that.

    Must've been in summer, since we're over the Cap for quite some time.

    Anyway, right decision by Morey. Don't want this idiot around here.

    Re: Codman's reference back on July 26th was Nick Young and not Terrence Ross? ...

    Nick Young sort of reminds me of Corey Brewer, can run the fast break but makes stupid decisions. To his credit, NY is a much better 3 point shooter.

    Also, we shouldn't be too surprised Morey rejected this move, he values 2nd round picks more than anything.

    I agree, he has been basically a joke around the league these past few years...

    That would've been a bad trade. Maybe it would be justified if the trade was straight up for Brewer but no way in hell you want both Brewer AND Young on the same squad.

    Morey is effective with his 2nd round picks. Keep them for now.

    Cyber welcome back!:)

    I think the ones who offered the second rounder was the Lakers.
    If not they should have . Even a second is not enough compensation. Though lately he has been playing well.

    Thanks cyber!

    I would have done straight up for brewer, and I don't really hate swaggy p, but I'm glad we didn't do the trade from a chemistry stand point.

    Move away from the "Swag champs"
