Wizards' Nick Young Receiving 'Major Interest' From Chinese Teams

Wilson Chandler was the first NBA player to sign in China and forego playing in the NBA once the lockout ends, but he may not be the last. Nick Young, who led the Washington Wizards in scoring last year, is also receiving "major interest" from Chinese teams, agent Aaron Mintz tells ESPN's Marc Stein.

Young, like Chandler, is a restricted free agent. Once the lockout ends, he is free to sign with any NBA team, but the Wizards could match the contract. If he signs in China, though, there is nothing the Wizards can do. They would retain his rights for the future, but without a contract, Young would not be obligated to return.

The Chinese Basketball Association recently outlawed signing NBA players while giving them an out to return to the NBA once the lockout ends. Chandler decided to sign in China anyway. Perhaps Young is next.
