More on this storyline

Before hiring Frank Vogel in 2019, the Lakers negotiated with Monty Williams and Tyronn Lue. Per sources familiar with the discussions, the franchise offered three-year deals with less money than each demanded. They ended up offering the same deal to Vogel. -via Bleacher Report / April 20, 2022

The Quin Snyder thing is interesting, just because Quin and Rob Pelinka have a friendship and relationship dating back many years. And you feel like if there was a coach who Rob would kind of get out of the way for… it would be Quinn. -via Spotify / April 16, 2022

I’ve heard some pushback from people in the Lakers about the point I made that the way they handled the Vogel situation over these last three years could be seen as a negative to potential coaches. -via Spotify / April 16, 2022
