Los Angeles Lakers Rumors
Kyle Goon: Monty Williams, who coached Russell Westbrook as an assistant in OKC, says he’s confident that he will find his way with the Lakers because he’s done it every year. “He’ll figure it out. I hope it’s not tonight.”
Mike Trudell: Vogel on Kendrick Nunn’s absence (out for at least 2/3 weeks): “Kendrick is a hell of a player, and we had him penciled in as a rotation player … I loved the idea of him playing off Russ and LeBron … (tough) loss for us.”
Gerald Bourguet: Frank Vogel says the Lakers are going with the same starting lineup with DeAndre Jordan at the 5 alongside Anthony Davis. Mentioned Deandre Ayton’s size and how “he shot 80% against us in the playoffs” as part of his reasoning
Jovan Buha: Frank Vogel says Dwight Howard “for sure” should have made the NBA’s Top 75 list, citing Howard being a three-time Defensive Player of the Year and 11th all-time in rebounding.
