Two years ago, Young clashed heads with rookie D’Angelo Russell which really threw off the chemistry in Los Angeles. While Young did have some success with the Lakers his time there was one of the worst in franchise history. This, along with off the court issues made it clear that Russell would leave once his contract came to an end.

Kevin Durant welcomed Young on Twitter last night.

By no means is Young a franchise player, but he will be a solid contributor off the Bench for this already stacked Golden State team. Young is coming off a season where he averaged 13.2 points per game on a very young Los Angeles team.

Any player added to this Golden State team will be an elevated version of themselves because of how good this team is. If Young were to buy into the style of play built by Steve Kerr and this team over the past few years, he could really be a good fit.
