Despite all the trade rumors, Nick Young’s still got jokes.

After scoring the game-winning three in a double overtime contest at the Drew League today, Young joked to Serena Winters from Lakers Nation that he “felt like Pau Gasol” after being included in so many rumors this summer.

Gasol, of course, was no stranger to trade rumors during his time in Los Angeles.


Young also told Mark Medina from the L.A. Daily News that he met with Mitch Kupchak recently, who told him not to take the Lou Williams signing as a “slap in the face.”

Last season, Young struggled with various injury woes and shot a career-low 36 percent from the field.
