Every morning, the fine folks at Sports Radio Interviews sift through the a.m. drive-time chatter to bring you the best interviews with coaches, players, and personalities across the sports landscape. Today: The Wizards released some hostages.
Nick Young joined Fox Sports Radio with Petros and Money to talk about how he found out about getting traded and how crazy things have been since the deal was completed, what was going on in Washington this season, what his role will be in Los Angeles, how many shots he expects to get per night, and what he knows about the current Clippers.
How he found out about getting traded and how crazy things have been since the deal:
"It's been crazy. I actually found out from my parents first I think. My mom called me screaming and said it went through and everything. It's been wild you know?"
What was going on in Washington this season:
"I don't know. We had a curse on us for some reason. We were on Not Top 10 every night. Every night it was something and we couldn't break the habit. They drafted me and I'm going to miss those guys on the team."
What his role will be in Los Angeles and how many shots he expects to get:
"(Laughing) There's not enough balls out there but I'm just going to come in and play my game, try to make the team better the best I can, play defense, and I'm a shooter, I'm a scorer so I'm going to do my thing."
Whether he was a Lakers fan or Clippers fan:
"I was both. (Host: Nobody is both.) I was a big Ron Harper fan growing up."
On his new teammates:
"I played with Caron (Butler), Randy Foye, and we play together a lot during the summer so I know Chauncey and a couple of those guys here. I've been in the league for five years now so I've run into most of them."
