Report: Luke Walton in no danger of losing job
LaVar Ball’s criticisms of Los Angeles Lakers coach Luke Walton are doing nothing to permeate the team’s front office.
USA Today’s Sam Amick reported Wednesday that the organization has complete faith in Walton and his job is not in any danger.
Notably, the same Laker source told Amick that the organization has no regrets about selecting Lonzo Ball No. 2 overall in last June’s draft, despite the distractions that have been caused by his father.
Walton is only in the second year of a five-year contract and there is an understanding that the Lakers require a hefty rebuild, so ownership remains firmly behind their coach.
Ball’s comments have caused a lot of speculation, but there really doesn’t seem tobe anything to it. The bigger issue may be ensuring that Lonzo’s head is where it should be.
