LALSHOOTING Guard: 6’7, 210 lbs; 11th year, USC 

NBA Role: irrationally confident, scoring swingman 

Nick ‘Swaggy P’ Young, a self-assured, ‘rock up, shoot’ guard with his own style; if you’re new to the program here’s a quick rundown: Swaggy loves shooting with a hand in his grill – Young loves fading/stepping back to the left and rising over defenders for jumpers after a quick, back and forth dribble; instant offense off the bench – can light it up – buttt there’s also the risk of Swaggy’s recurring, terrible shots taking a toll on teammates; despite a few antics here and there, Young’s been a solid scorer & locker room presence – life of the party is the perfect way to describe him – is Swaggy back full-time?
