“Of course you want to play. That’s why we do what we do,” Price said. “You want to play. But you just never know. You never know what’s ahead. Whatever role is my role, I’ll embrace it, whether it’s being here as a third guard and being kind of a security blanket or whatever you want to call it. I’m at the stage of my career where I want to win and I want to be able to help a team out in whatever needs they need me to do so. That’s something I would love to come back and be a part of this organization next year. We’ll see how it works out.” Los Angeles Daily News

“It’s not about me or anything else but you getting better as a basketball player and to help you and help us as a basketball team,” Scott said after Wednesday morning’s shootaround at the Lakers’ practice facility in El Segundo. “I have no agenda. I tell that to all my guys that ask me after the season and that don’t ask me. I say, ‘This is what you need to work on to get better as a basketball player coming into the next year.’ Nick is no exception.” Yet, Young became an exception. Two weeks ago, Young had scoffed at Scott’s critiques by telling Los Angeles News Group that he takes them “with a grain of salt” and that he considered them “a little unfair.” Young sang a different tune to reporters after his exit meetings on Tuesday. Young said “me and coach are cool” and that “we’re on the same page.” Young then added, “I take that as he wants me to get better.” “What he called at that particular time criticism is coaching. I told him the same thing yesterday,” Scott said. “There are certain things you have to get better at on both ends of the floor. You do those things, there’s a great chance you’ll be able to do the things that you are accustomed to doing. If you don’t, it’ll be hard for you to get on the floor with me. That’s what I demand.” Los Angeles Daily News
