Report: Luke Walton’s job ‘not in danger’

Luke Walton

Los Angeles Lakers president Magic Johnson may not be thrilled with how Luke Walton has the team playing, but his job apparently is not on the line yet.

According to Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times, it is true that Johnson angrily met with his coach after a winless two-game road trip, but ownership is firmly behind Walton and Johnson is not close to firing him.

Read like this, that angry meeting sounds like a warning shot from Johnson. For now, Walton appears secure. If the Lakers continue to lose, it’s reasonable that this could change very quickly, but for now, reports that Walton is essentially coaching for his job appear to be premature.
