GM Mitch Kupchak has replaced Metta with Nick Young today, after he agreed to a 1 year deal with the Lake Show.
A couple days ago, many sources announced that Metta World Peace could be amnestied by the Los Angeles Lakers. Welp, they were correct. All I can say right now is WHYYY??? I absolutely loved Metta as an athlete and as a human being. He helped us win another title in 2010 — and we couldn’t have won that ring without him.
I’m not familiar with Nick Young, so I’m feeling indifferent to him signing with the Lakers. We’ll see how he works out next season.
