i wonder if clips are using him as just a rental. he's on a QO right now and wasn't signed to an extension with the wiz because he wanted over 10mil.

So far this has been reported only on Marks twitter and nowhere else that I can find. I hope he knows what he is talking about.

Hell yeah, got rid of Cook, now we need to ship Gomes out with him. Nick Young, such a nice upgrade, he's gonna do some work for us.

lol, I'm trying to figure out if theWizards know how worthless Cook is, cause they gave us one of their most productive players. I'm LOVING this right now.

Good deal, sharing my thoughts here from the trade thread. Young talent who can score and likes to show up for games against LA teams, plus he's an expiring contract. Doesn't fix our defense issues but we do need that extra scoring off the bench and he can play the 2 or 3 on offense.

Best part? It only cost us Brian Cook! Well plus a 2nd rounder but doesn't mean much for us who're trying to win now.

Nick Young says he's willing to approve a deal to Clips that would sacrifice his Bird Rights... so what exactly does that mean?

Someone pinch me. I feel like I am dreaming.

Got rid of Cook aaand we got Nick Young out of it?

WOW WOW WOW (the pick doesnt matter because look at our past drafting in the 2nd round)

Oh my god. The good side is Nick Young can score in bunches, he has a nice size, he is a decent rebounder, he plays OK D, he is a nice finisher. He is so perfect at the SG I dont know even know what to say.

I dont want to be a Debby Downer but the only thing is that this is his last year and he will probably bolt next year depending what happens this year. But the positive side from this being his last year is WE NEED TO WIN NOW. We got a player that can help us now. Foye goes to the bench. We now have Bledsoe, Mo and Foye interchanging between the PG and SG instead of having to slide one over to the SF spot and be totally outmatched. Now Mo can be a SG and be even more of a scorer off the bench since Bledsoe will control the point and dish it out to him.

We are stacked this year. And i give The Clippers credit. For all we know we can be gutted cause of free agency this year and next. I wont think that DJ is the only guy we have locked up until after next season haha

LETS GO!!!!

Off the top of my head...I remember he was a free agent last season, he wanted a big deal but the Wizards did not want to give it to him. So they signed him for 1 year (not quite double digit millions but like 8 I think im not sure) so after this season I believe he is an unrestricted free agent.

But who knows...depending how it goes for us this season and being that he is a USC kid he might want to stay and hook us up lol

Free-agent at end of season.

Young or Foye starting at the #2 now? I also think that young can play the 3 and 3 guard sets that VDN likes to run.

Great pick-up!

Great work in acquiring Young! This team was in dire need of a knockdown perimeter shooter following the loss of Chauncey. Young won't do much else, but he's a great fit for this lineup. Yet another great move by Olshey and the Clippers brass.

Owed $3.7M this year and last year of his contract, per Spotrac.com.

Sounds like he may be working a longer term deal with Clips, staying tuned.

It looks like its just pending Young waiving his bird rights. I don't see why he wouldn't.

another thing: brian cook wasnt getting any PT - by getting nick young, we're essentially getting a guy that will provide minutes (meaning more rest for tired legs)

Worked out great. Olshey said he didn't wan't to give up young assets for a rent a player... Keep Bledsoe and 1st round picks and get rid of Cook and 2nd round pick. What a steal by Olshey. All Those Olhshey doubters can calm down now. Everything this guy has done so far has been great!

This was a good steal and all, but damn...our team is full of chuckers and ball stoppers. Not to mention no defense.
