Magic Johnson expects Luke Walton to keep job entire season

Luke Walton

Magic Johnson has spoken, and he’s given assurances regarding Luke Walton.

Johnson spoke with three Los Angeles Times reporters about the status of Walton, who is in his third season as the Los Angeles Lakers’ head coach. Johnson told the LA Times reporters that Walton will finish the season as the team’s head coach, though he did give a caveat, leaving the door open for a firing if things go haywire.

The talk about Walton’s job status came up after a report said Johnson laid into Walton during a meeting. Johnson says he and Walton are “all good” despite the meeting.

This seems to mesh with a report from Friday that said ownership still supports Walton and that the coach’s job is not in danger.

The Lakers enter their game on Sunday night 4-5 having won two in a row.
