Luke Walton Rumors

Part of the reason Walton is okay waiting a while to get back to contention is less pragmatic though. It sounds like part of it is that he’s having a blast working with the Lakers’ young players. “It’s a lot of fun, it really is. There’s obviously a lot of stress and frustration that can come with losing when you’re caught up in the moment, but we have a great group of young players, and I don’t just mean that as a great group of talented players,” Walton said during an appearance on “The Full 48” with Howard Beck. “I mean like actual people, and who they are and the way they work makes coaching so much fun, because they’re coming in. We still have the playoffs going on and we’ve had six or seven guys in here pretty much every day, Monday through Friday from May 15 until right now.
“That’s not mandatory. The off-season is optional. We told them that’d we’d be around, and if they wanted to work to let us know, and they’ve reached out. They’ve come in every day depending on if we have draft workouts,” Walton continued. “They’re starting their morning at 8 a.m. here getting breakfast. If we have draft workouts, they start their morning around 9:40 or 10 in the weight room and then come out to the court when we’re done with our draft workouts.”
