Nick Young is staying in shape this summer. He’s already been caught throwing down dunks at the Drew League, and now he’s shared some footage of one of his workouts.

In a post on his Instagram account, Young shows that his length and athleticism allows him to throw down dunks with ease, even though the video below was apparently shot at the end of his workout:

Young is 6’7″ with a 7’0″ wingspan and a 40.5 inch vertical (per Draft Express) so it’s not surprising to see him dunking, even when tired. However, this is good to see for Laker fans. Not only is Young showing that he’s a worker, but he’s also going to add some much needed length, athleticism and youth to the team next season.
