EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) -- Nick Young has opted out of his contract with the Los Angeles Lakers.

The team said it was informed Wednesday by agent Mark Bartelstein that Young will test free agency.

General manager Mitch Kupchak said the team hopes to bring him back, though he noted that Young's agent and the market will dictate his future.

Young averaged a career-high 17.9 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.5 assists last season, his first with the Lakers.
