Byron Scott on if the Lakers will play Nick Young at point guard: 'Hell no.'

At least one decision the coach and fans can agree on.

Lou Williams has struggled for the Lakers while miscast as the team's backup point guard. After a career season with the Toronto Raptors in which he averaged 15.5 points on 40.4% shooting, Williams' averages have plummeted to 12.3 points on 32.8% shooting in his debut with the purple and gold.

Lakers head coach Byron Scott voiced faith last Thursday that Williams would bounce back, but on Sunday told team reporters that he was considering making a change. So one hero asked the important question on all of our minds: will Nick Young be the Lakers new backup point guard?

So it sounds like Swaggy-P will not make his long awaited transition to Swaggy-PG just yet. Young is only averaging 0.8 assists per game this season, so he will have to get those up if he really wants his chance to back up D'Angelo Russell.
