The Lakers' resident volume shooter Nick Young is reportedly dating an Australian rapper with a penchant for NSFW music videos. 

Thanks to The Daily Mail's Juliet Paylor, we now know that Swaggy P is getting quite cozy with Iggy Azalea. It seems the two shared a nice dinner at BOA Steakhouse in Los Angeles on Saturday. 

There is no word on how long the two have been dating, but Paylor notes that the weekend date night took place just a couple of days after the two featured in the rapper's following Instagram post:  

Now Paylor does note the two became rather chummy on Twitter back in September—apparently Young referred to Azalea as his WCW, meaning Woman Crush Wednesday. 

Unfortunately, links to Nick Young's Twitter profile are nonexistent as of this writing. Young's Instagram feed is still active, but it doesn't reveal much more about the budding romance. 

We were able to track down some of the more jovial exchanges between the two from Azalea's feeds: 

Unfortunately, that Instagram post has been deleted. Thankfully, the following Instagram survives with the caption, "Goodluck tonight @swaggyp1 so proud of you for making the toon squad. Ahhh!!!"

If ever there were a reason to remake Space Jam, it would be Young's audacious game. Just think about Young and J.R. Smith taking on the Monstars. Not an assist would be had that night. 

For those not familiar with the musical stylings of Azalea, The Big Lead's Stephen Douglas posted this NSFW music video for fans to enjoy: 

The 23-year-old from Sydney, Australia, previously dated A$AP Rocky, but the two split back in June. Some of her bigger fans might recall that she once had "Live Love A$AP" tattooed on her fingers. However, Paylor reports the A$AP portion of the body art has since been crossed out. 

By Saturday, she was spotted getting in Young's blue Ferrari outside a popular Los Angeles steakhouse. 

Consider this a testament to Young's sweet-talking game, or Azalea's ability to grab rebounds with fantastic fervor. 

Either way, we look forward to what we presume will be a rather social media-friendly romance.
