Nick Young Looking Forward to Talking Trash to Lakers: ‘Trying to Kill Them'

Nick Young is looking forward to tonight's matchup in Los Angeles.

For the first time, he will face his old team -- the Los Angeles Lakers.

"I'm going in trying to kill them guys (laughing)," Young recently told the Bay Area News Group's Mark Medina. "It's gonna be fun. I'm gonna be talking trash and just having fun."

In July 2013, Young signed a free agent contract with the Lakers.

After averaging 17.9 points per game and shooting nearly 39 percent from deep, he was rewarded with a 4-year deal worth over $21 million.

Last summer, he opted out of the final year of the contract -- $5,668,667.

"LA is still home for me. Still a dream come true to play for your hometown team," Young said. "It was dope. It also had some bad times too. The first year was good and my last year was good.

"Came in with a bang and left with a bang."

Young ended up signing for $5,192,000 with Golden State.

Over the Warriors' last 10 games, he is averaging 8.3 points and shooting over 45 percent from the field.
