Lakers officially announce Frank Vogel’s hiring as next coach

Granted, that could change if the New Orleans Pelicans change their stance on trading Anthony Davis to Los Angeles this summer, but it seems as though they're going to remain firm on that front, even with David Griffin now overseeing basketball operations.

The Lakers have yet to announce the hiring of Jason Kidd as an assistant on Vogel's staff. Kidd - who interviewed with the Lakers last month - was a head coach in Brooklyn and Milwaukee but was sacked by the Bucks during the 2017-18 season. He amassed a record of 250-181 through parts of six seasons with the Indiana Pacers from 2010-16, qualifying for the postseason in all but one of those campaigns and garnering four Eastern Conference Coach of the Month honors.

Vogel flew to Los Angeles on May 9 and met with a group that included owner Jeanie Buss, general manager Rob Pelinka and adviser Kurt Rambis after discussions with Tyronn Lue fell apart.

"I am very excited for this opportunity to join the Lakers, a prestigious organization that I have long admired", Vogel said in a statement.

They also have five players - Rajon Rondo, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Lance Stephenson, JaVale McGee and Tyson Chandler - who were on one-year or expiring contracts.

Terremoto de 7.7 sacude Papua Nueva Guinea y provoca alerta de tsunami
Sobre esta línea de 40.000 kilómetros se extiende la zona donde se han registrado mayor actividad sísmica y volcánica del mundo. Inicialmente, la magnitud del terremoto se había situado en 7.7, pero minutos más tarde fue reajustada a 7.5.

"I look forward to coaching such phenomenal talent and bringing my strategic vision to the team", he said.

His more recent stint with the Orlando Magic was less successful; the team went 54-110 under his purview from 2016-18, finishing well outside of playoff contention both years. However, when he has been healthy he's shown enough flashes to make a team want to invest time in developing him.

According to multiple media reports, Vogel was no higher than third on the Lakers' list of candidates to replace Walton.

Vogel, 45, will be the 27th head coach in franchise history and the 23rd of the Los Angeles era.
