In an interview with ESPN LA, Nick Young talked about his close friendship with Nets’ point guard Jordan Farmar. The two met when playing on the same travel team in LA, and have been the best of friends since.
Does this mean that the Nets have an advantage over the other 29 teams in the NBA in vying for Young’s services? I would think so. LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosh wanted to play together on the same team. Nick Young isn’t LeBron, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Young is the same way.
However, do the Nets want Young? I’m not so sure. The guy can score but isn’t the most efficient of scorers and can tantalize fans with poor shot selection and rushed shots. Personally, I feel that the Nets should go after Young only as a fourth or fifth target and avoid overpaying for the restricted free agent. What are your thoughts?
