Nick Young has agreed to a four-year, $21.5 million deal to stay with the Lakers.
Last season, Young averaged 17.9 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.5 assists over 28.3 minutes per game. Given the state of the Lakers and what his role should be in the backcourt tandem with Jeremy Lin, he should get the opportunity to at least match those minutes and potentially those totals as well.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Henry Owens will make his spring-training debut Friday.
While Owens' ERA jumped with his move to Triple-A last season, his K:BB spiked, leaving the Red Sox believing that he could be ready fro a jump to the majors soon. He'll debut this spring but will likely open the year at Triple-A to hone his craft. Should he dominate, the team could potentially bring him up for the second half. Analysis: Howard Bender
Hank Conger is dealing with a sore left wrist.
With the Astros saying that Evan Gattis will not play behind the plate at all this season, Conger steps in as the unequivocal back-up to Jason Castro. He's not really competing with Max Stassi who is seeing time in camp right now. Conger is day-to-day but should be just fine in a few days. Analysis: Howard Bender
