Nick Young Encouraged By Wizards' Qualifying Offer

1

Wizards assistant coaches Ryan Saunders and Sam Cassell visited with Nick Young, Jordan Crawford and JaVale McGee in Los Angeles for three days during the month of June in preparation of a lockout and provided a program that they intend for him to follow. "They gave us a little workout sheet, program and things they want us to work on. They broke it down pretty good, too. They put a lot of time in," said Young, who plans on improving his ballhandling and his ability to do more catch-and-shooting. "It’s going to be a lot of open shots with John [Wall] and Jordan and the players that we have. I’m staying ready. The only thing we can do is stay in shape and stay ready. You never know when you’re going to have to be ready. I’m just sticking to my same routine, the same things I’ve been doing and trying to build off the year I had." The Wizards have already tendered a $3.7 million qualifying offer to Young, giving them first right of refusal for any offer sheet he may sign, based on the previous rules of the collective bargaining agreement. "It means a lot. I put in some years and I got a chance. They are sticking with me, so that’s a sign of them sticking with me," Young said. "The Wizards are all I really know right now. I talked to the coaches, and Ernie [Grunfeld] and the people in the front office. You never know how it goes. It’s up to my agent [Aaron Mintz] and I hope they can work something out."
