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
The Rangers released Ryan Ludwick on Sunday.
Ludwick was notified a couple days back that he would not be making the big-league team and was allowed to search for another team. He has struggled in Spring Training and hasn't been able to get over the .700 OPS mark the last two seasons. The Rangers will look internally to create outfield options for the 2015 season.
