Lakers guard Nick Young will appear in the March issue of GQ, posing with his girlfriend, rapper Iggy Azalea.

The couple, who originally met through a Twitter conversation, have a four-page spread in which they model Versace.

The issue will be released on Tuesday.

“Nick’s really goofy and funny,” the Australian Azalea said in the article. “I always joke with him, ‘I hope we don’t break up, because you’d ruin basketball for me.’”


Young is expected to return to the Lakers’ lineup Sunday night when the Lakers play host to the Brooklyn Nets. He hasn’t played since suffering a knee injury on Feb. 5.

Behind Pau Gasol by just a tenth of a point, Young is the Lakers’ second-leading scorer at 16.9 a game through 48 appearances.
