3 Major Needs For Los Angeles Lakers Entering NBA Offseason

Los Angeles Lakers, NBA Rumors
NBA Analysis Network

The Los Angeles Lakers are heading into what will assuredly be a very busy NBA offseason. They got things started almost immediately when they fired head coach Frank Vogel, as finding a new head coach is one of the many needs the team will have.

Los Angeles came into the 2021-22 season with high expectations. They were tabbed as one of the favorites to win the NBA Championship, but they didn’t even play well enough to qualify for the postseason. The Lakers went 33-49, falling well short of expectations.

There were a lot of reasons as to why things went so poorly, yet Vogel was used as the scapegoat, at least off the bat. He lasted only three seasons as head coach, winning a championship in his first season in the Orlando Bubble in 2020. That speaks volumes about how difficult of a job it is being the head coach of the purple and gold.

Figuring out who the person to lead them back into the postseason will not be an easy task. There have been some potential candidates mentioned, such as Quin Synder of the Utah Jazz and Doc Rivers of the Philadelphia 76ers. But, both are currently employed and no one knows what their future will hold.
