Nick Young‘s struggle NBA season too yet another hit. The Lakers guard has been deactivated from the team’s roster and will likely sit the final six games of the season.
According to ESPN, Swaggy P was benched due to basketball reasons. However, part of that entails where his head is out after his relationship with Iggy Azalea took a hit when a video taken by D’Angelo Russell hit the internet.
“It has nothing to do with the chemistry,” Lakers head Coach Byron Scott told reporters at practice on Monday (April 4). “It has everything to do with just basketball. Right now, I know what he’s going through, and I know it’s hard on him. But he’s not here with us, mentally, and there’s no need for me to put him out there on the floor.”
Instead of Young, Scott decided to keep Metta World Peace active on the roster.
To his credit, Scott noted that Young has been coming to practice and competing despite his benching.
As for Iggy Azalea, she was spotted still wearing her engagement ring at the iHeartRadio Music Awards red carpet. That’s the only sign we’ve seen thus far that Swaggy P’s relationship is still a go.
