Agent: Hornets Eyeing Brown, Young
(Agent Mark) Bartelstein said Sunday that Hornets General Manager Dell Demps, who could not be reached for comment, also has inquired about two of Bartenstein’s other clients, shooting guards Shannon Brown of the Lakers and Nick Young of the Wizards.
Young is a restricted free agent, meaning Washington could match an offer sheet he signs with another club. Brown is an unrestricted free agent, though the Lakers have retained his rights with a qualifying offer, meaning they could also match any offer Brown received through free agency. Los Angeles’ current payroll, however, makes it unlikely they’d retain Brown.
