Kevin Ding: “I would frankly be surprised if Nick Young is on the Lakers’ roster at the start of the season. They’ve been trying to trade him for a while, they’re still trying to trade him. They are willing to even buy him out, if necessary, to move on and really commit to the youth movement and let D’Angelo Russell do his thing.”
The Nets have three point guards on their roster, with starter Jarrett Jack likely to be bought out at $500,000 after tearing his ACL, and backup Shane Larkin having until June 29 to decide whether he will exercise his $1.5 million player option.
Candace Buckner: Chase Budinger and #Pacers have agreed to terms on a buyout, IndyStar has learned. @Sean Deveney first with the news. The agreement is in place but buyout will become final tomorrow. Budinger and #Pacers had come to terms a week ago.
