New Orleans Rumors
Nick Young fielded interest from the Golden State Warriors, Oklahoma City Thunder and New Orleans Pelicans after free agency began at 9:01 pm PT on Friday, according to league sources familiar with the situation. Though the Lakers also contacted Young’s representatives during that time period, both the Lakers and Young have conflicting agendas that suggest the end of their four-year tenure together.
Walton gushed about the “great relationship” he formed with Gentry. Walton has incorporated parts of Golden State’s offense that Gentry implemented before taking a head-coaching job with New Orleans in the 2015-16 season. The two also shared an episode that often led toward the Warriors’ coaching staff teasing Walton. “It’d be six minutes on the clock before the game started and he was walking around in his underwear in the locker room,” Gentry said, laughing. “We shook our head all the time.”
