The Clippers acquired shooting guard Nick Young from the Washington Wizards for Brian Cook on Thursday.
Cook said he was informed of the trade by Clippers’ management that he would be sent to the Wizards.
The Clippers have been looking for a shooting guard since Chauncey Billups suffered a season-ending torn left Achilles’ tendon injury Feb. 6.
Young was averaging 16.6 points per game for the Wizards this season, and he has a career average of 11.6 points over four seasons.
Young, a 6-7 guard who was a star at USC, is shooting 40.6% from the field and 37.1% from three-point range this season.
