Reported on May 11th, 2019, the Lakers have hired former Pacers and Magic head coach Frank Vogel. Out of the 6 seasons, he coached the Pacers he went to the playoffs 5 times including back to back Eastern Conference Finals. With the Orlando Magic, he went a disappointing 54-110 and got fired after his second season. To be fair though he was not given the best team. Vogel’s contract is 3 only 3 years but the amount of money is unknown right now.

Next which came as a bit of a surprise to me is Jason Kidd former NBA player and former Nets and Bucks Head coach agreed to become the Lakers, new assistant coach. He was one of the backup options for the Lakers if also Frank Vogel decided not to coach the Lakers, but obviously, Vogel signed so he became the assistant coach which I’m happy with. He will help build the young guys talent up as he did with Kris Middleton, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Malcolm Brogdon. Reports came out right after he signed saying he did help Lonzo Ball the previous summer with his game. As the Bucks and Nets head coach, he went a total 183-190 which isn’t that bad. How do you feel about the new coaching staff?
