Vogel And Kidd To Lead Lakers

Jonathan Grant | May 12th, 2019

News came out on Saturday that the Los Angeles Lakers had apparently hired their next Head Coach in the form of Frank Vogel. The former Orlando Magic and Indiana Pacers man, the latter of which was his best stint by far, will take over after Ty Lue reportedly turned down the offer to replace the departed Luke Walton.

Fadeaway World

According to sources, this is seen as a move that has been OK’ed by Jeannie Buss due to the influence of Kurt Rambiss. If true, it just goes to show how much of a political struggle is going on right now. Vogel led the Pacers to two Eastern Conference Finals in a row in 2013 and 2014. He will be joined on the bench by Jason Kidd, who is seen as the heir apparent to the throne. Kidd will be tasked with helping guards, especially Lonzo Ball, reach their potential before a possible promotion is given.
