Report: Nick Young re-signs with Wizards for $3.7 million

Nick Young is expected to sign with the Wizards on Monday for their $3.7 million qualifying offer. The Wizards had hoped to sign Young to a long-term deal, but the scoring wing was seeking a salary of approximately $9 million per year.


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: He wanted $9 million. He got a $3.7 million qualifying offer from the Washington Wizards.

Nick Young, welcome to the new NBA, where salaries are only somewhat outrageous and the pay is for production instead of potential.

Young is talented and posted impressive scoring numbers last year (17.4 points per game), however, those numbers came on a poor Wizards side.

The USC product had little leverage as a restricted free agent, as most teams anticipated that the Wizards would match any offer.

Look for Young to have another banner year, and try for a homerun contract in free agency next summer.
