Is this because of the prank Lakers trainer Gary Vitti pulled on Robert Sacre on Wednesday? By tricking Young's teammate into thinking he was getting traded, did Vitti also fool Swaggy P into believing that Wednesday was the last day players could get traded?
Or maybe there's a simpler explanation, as offered by Lakers coach Byron Scott: Young just doesn't pay that much attention to things.
Nick Young thought the trade deadline was yesterday. Byron Scott: "I don't think Nick pays a whole lot of attention to current events."
