This is not how you impress teams when you are a free agent.

Nick Young was reportedly arrested Friday night in Hollywood following a traffic stop, as reported by TMZ Sports.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the former Golden State Warriors star was pulled over just before midnight for a routine traffic violation when something went wrong.

We’re told the 33-year-old refused to cooperate with the officers on scene, and so he was arrested for obstruction of justice....

He was taken to a nearby station where he was booked. We’re told Young’s vehicle was impounded.

We don’t have a lot of details here on exactly how this went down, so it’s difficult to draw and real conclusions.

Young won a ring last season with the Golden State Warriors, where he played 17 minutes a game, shot 41 percent from deep, and made some plays. The Warriors, frustrated with young not playing within the offense and not playing much defense at all, were looking to move on.

Young may not have a home when training camp starts, but he is the kind of player who gets picked up as a mid-season replacement by some team.
