Watch Nick Young, Wesley Johnson shoot at Lakers’ practice facility

New Lakers Nick Young and Wesley Johnson are putting in off-season work at the team’s practice facility.

On Thursday, the Lakers released a glimpse of their small-forward tandem putting up shots with the help of player development coach Mark Madsen. You can watch the video at the bottom of this post.

Both Young and Johnson can also play shooting guard, but with Metta World Peace now gone via the team’s one-time amnesty clause, there are plenty of minutes available at small forward.

Young has also been a regular at Drew League games in Los Angeles.

The Lakers start the regular season Oct. 29 at Staples Center against the Clippers.
