Lakers news: Nick Young signing with Lakers, according to report

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Lakers have added a perimeter player, and California native, to their fold.

The Los Angeles Lakers will be signing free agent swingman Nick Young, reports Sam Amick of USA Today. Young was one of the handful of perimeter players the Lakers reached out to after free agency began on July 1.

Young's agent Mark Bartelstein told ESPN's Marc Stein that the Lakers are an organization he "dreamed" of playing for. Young was raised in Southern California and went to college at USC.

Details of the agreement have not been released, though it is expected to be a veteran's minimum signing.

More Lakers free agency news: Jordan Farmar is coming home

The Lakers were interested in signing Young last Summer, but he signed with the Philadelphia 76ers on a one-year, $6 million deal. Young spent the 2012-2013 season with the Sixers as a bench reserve. He averaged 10.6 points per game on 41 percent shooting overall.

Young is the third free agent the Lakers have reached an agreement with. The signing of Chris Kaman has not been announced by the team yet, and there have been no updates on discussions regarding Jordan Farmar's buyout with the Turkish Basketball League club he intends to leave to return to Los Angeles.
