Uh oh. It looks like the bad blood between Nick Young and D’Angelo Russell may not be in the past just yet. Nick is still angry at D’Angelo for outing him as a cheater, and now he wants the Lakers to trade someone, a source EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com. Here’s the scoop.
The real losers in the Nick Young/D’Angelo Russell drama may be the Los Angeles Lakers! Nick is demanding that one of them get traded to another team following the release of a video where he admits to cheating on fiancee Iggy Azalea, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
D’Angelo may have apologized in a very heartfelt speech at the Mar. 30 press conference, but Nick isn’t ready to move on from the incident where a video D’Angelo took of him bragging about cheating on Iggy leaked to the public.

“Nick doesn’t want to play with D’Angelo,” a source explained EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com. “He is not going to forgive him over this and he is so disgusted with the whole situation that he has asked to be traded in the off-season, or to have the team trade D’Angelo.”
Apparently, Nick felt like he needed to go to extreme measures to move past this whole business. “He has put an ultimatum on the team,” the source continued EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com. D’Angelo himself is desperate to move on from all of the drama. “I feel as sick as possible,” said D’Angelo during a press conference. “I’ve been asked that question 110 times and my answer, my feelings stay the same. I wish I could make things better right away, but I can’t.”
More importantly than the game, to D’Angelo, is his friendship. “He’s one of the guys that I’ve always talked to about anything and I’ve cherished our friendship and for me to have an incident like this come up and put it in jeopardy is not what I was intending to do.” Aww! Clearly that friendship meant more to him than Nick.
