Lakers coach Byron Scott is "disappointed" that an unflattering video of Nick Young apparently taken by rookie teammate D'Angelo Russell became public.

Scott declined to address any details about another embarrassment for the Western Conference's worst team after their shootaround for Wednesday's game against Miami.

Russell recorded a video in which he asked Young about being with women other than his fiancee, rapper Iggy Azalea. The video began circulating online in the past week and can be found here. reported Tuesday that the breach of locker room protocol has driven a wedge between several Lakers and Russell, the No. 2 overall pick in last year's draft.

"Young does not appear to realize he is being taped," ESPN reported, adding it's unclear how the video became public but "sources say the resulting tension in the Lakers' locker room in recent days was among the factors that contributed to L.A.'s 48-point pounding from the Utah Jazz ... the Lakers' worst (loss) in franchise history."

ESPN said the Lakers' trust in Russell is "eroding."

Russell declined to speak to reporters at the shootaround. Russell and Young will address the media before Wednesday night's game, the Lakers say.
