AHardly a few hours have passed since the Los Angeles Lakers made the dismissal of Frank Vogel official as coach of the Californian franchise, but in the El Segundo offices they are already working on planning for the 2022-2023 season and have already begun to shuffle different names as possible candidates for the bench.
First and favorite on Jeannie Buss and Rob Pelinka’s list is current Toronto Raptors coach Nick Nurse. The journalist Sham Charania has been in charge of revealing the intentions of the Angelenos, who want the coach who made the Canadians champions in 2019. In fact, in the Angeleno environment they are convinced that they can convince Nurse, who earns eight million dollars per season, so his hiring seems complicated.
The second name that appears in the Lakers pools is that of Doc Rivers, current coach of the Philadelphia 76ers. Former coach of the Clippers and Celtics, Rivers could leave the Pennsylvania franchise if the team does not do well in the playoffs and, above all, if he is not able to tie Embiid and James Harden.
The last name that sounds for the Los Angeles bench is that of Juwan Howard, coach of the University of Michigan and who will arrive with Rajon Rondo as assistant coach. However, in the last hours it seems that the Michigan coach could fall off the list to fulfill his desire to train his son in the Wolverines.
Who already seems out of any pool is Quin Snyder, who according to information that appeared in the last hour, would have “less interest” in signing for the Angelenos after seeing how they have handled the dismissal of Frank Vogel.
