NBA Trade Deadline: Clippers Acquire Nick Young From Wizards In Three-Team Trade

The Clippers managed to trade Brian Cook for guard Nick Young right under the trade deadline wire.

According to Yahoo Sports' Marc Spears and Adrian Wojnarowski the Los Angeles Clippers made a deal right under the wire with both the Washington Wizards and Denver Nuggets to acquire guard Nick Young to add some extra bench depth to their roster, while sending veteran Brian Cook on his way to his next destination.

Per Marc Spears on Twitter:

Per Adrian Wojnarwowski on Twitter:

Young, the 4th year guard and former USC Trojan, has averaged 16.6 points a game in an average of 30 minutes on the floor for Washington this season, joining the likes of Chris Paul and Blake Griffin on one of the hottest teams in the NBA. He'll be a great help as some extra guard depth along with Mo Williams and Eric Bledsoe.

Moving from the 9-32 Wizards to the 24-17 Clip Show must feel like winning the lottery to Young, who will have a great shot at a playoff run this season in Los Angeles.
