After a few miserable years with the Los Angeles Lakers, 32-year-old sharpshooter Nick Young has reportedly reached agreement to join the defending champion Golden State Warriors:

Young shot 40 percent from three-point range last season, and he averaged 13.2 points per game in 60 games for the Lakers.

The Warriors have great shooting in their starting lineup, but their current bench unit lacks in perimeter shooting. Shaun Livingston and Andre Iguodala help the team in plenty of other ways, but they both struggle with perimeter shooting.

Young also has some familiarity with the Warriors’ system. His head coach with the Lakers last season, Luke Walton, was a Warriors assistant prior to taking over in LA.

The 32-year-old Young has played for four teams in his 10-year career, including the Lakers, Philadelphia 76ers, Los Angeles Clippers, and the Washington Wizards.
