MLB trade deadline digest:

Nick Young: Traded to Clippers
Update: Young has been traded to the Clippers, Yahoo! Sports reports.

Recommendation: Young was moved to the Clippers; Nene Hilario, Brian Cook, and a second-round pick were moved to the Wizards; and JaVale McGee and Ronny Turiaf were sent to the Nuggets. It's not a lock, but the Clippers should put Young into the starting lineup at shooting guard so that they can use Randy Foye in the backup role that they prefer to use Foye in. Playing with a distributor like Chris Paul could be a gift for Young, but it's unlikely to improve his value much. Young still has to compete with Mo Williams and Foye for minutes, but there's a chance he could see additional time backing up Caron Butler at small forward.
