Report: Lakers with no considerations yet to dismiss coach Frank Vogel

The Los Angeles Lakers reportedly has no intentions yet to terminate Frank Vogel, an indication that the head coach’s job security remains safe, just for now. 

Per Dan Woike of Los Angeles Times, the Lakeshow authority has currently no plans to fire Vogel out of the coaching helm. 

Earlier this Tuesday, Bill Oram and Sam Amick of The Athletic detailed that Vogel is now on the hot seat, and was narrowly dismissed following the Lakers’ disappointing 37-point meltdown against the Denver Nuggets last week. The two insiders added that Vogel is on the game-to-game basis of assessment in accordance to its tenure as a lead tactician. 

By the time the Lakers and Jazz tipped off on Monday night, sources said, Vogel was coaching for his job after he narrowly avoided being fired in the wake of the 37-point loss in Denver 48 hours earlier. Had a scene like that repeated itself against the Jazz, many believed it would have been Vogel’s last game.

A midseason modification isn’t the most ideal move to commit with, but Vogel being only secured until the 2022-2023 season in his contract is an interesting matter to look at — especially if the inconsistencies in winning will continue to bother the franchise moving forward. 

After drawing high hopes in the offseason upon the acquisition of star point guard Russell Westbrook in a multi-player swap, the Lakers are presently in a peculiar place on the unpredictable row of Western Conference while holding a 22-22 card. As injuries, rumored issues within the roster construction, and trade talks are buzzing around their territory, expect immediate changes to happen, as what even claimed by veteran sports correspondent Marc Stein.
