Lakers examine harassment allegation

A Los Angeles Lakers spokesman said there are ''different interpretations'' Stephen Strasburg Jerseyabout what happened during an interaction between players Nick Young and Jordan Clarkson and a woman who accused them of harassing her.

Coach Byron Scott also said he spoke with the players about Sunday night's incident in Hollywood with Alexis Jones, an activist and public speaker against sexual harassment and domestic violence. The Lakers haven't indicated any intention of taking disciplinary action against Young or Clarkson.

Jones claims that at least one of the two gestured obscenely at her and her mother while the parties' cars were stopped at an intersection. After Jones posted the players' photos on Instagram with a message describing ''disgustingly vulgar gestures'' made by some of the four men in the car, commenters informed her that the men were Young and Clarkson.

Team spokesman John Black said the Lakers have spoken to Jones, Young and Clarkson about what happened.

''Our conclusion is that there are different interpretations of what happened,'' Black said. ''We support and Jordan and believe what they told us about the incidents and their actions. We also are supportive of Alexis and her feelings about what happened, about women's rights, and of the fine work Alexis is doing with her organization.''

Black said the Lakers attempted to arrange a meeting among Jones, Young and Clarkson to talk about what happened, but Jones' schedule didn't permit it. He said the Lakers are interested in inviting Jones to address the team about issues of respect.

''I talked to those guys (Monday) about that incident,'' Johnny Unitas JerseyScott said Tuesday night before the Lakers faced the Memphis Grizzlies. ''My conversation with them is always private, and we're just going to leave it at that.''

Clarkson is the Lakers' starting shooting guard, ranking second on the team with 15.5 points per game. He has emerged as a dependable NBA regular in two seasons since the Lakers drafted him in the second round out of Missouri.

Young is a Los Angeles and a flamboyant backup guard for the Lakers, although the USC product nicknamed ''Swaggy P.'' has made increasingly meager scoring contributions this season. He is engaged to Australian rapper Iggy Azalea.

The Lakers are the Western Conference's worst team at 14-55.
