Before the Los Angeles Lakers played the Portland Trail Blazers, the Magic Johnson president suddenly returned.
Since then, the guys have fired head coach Luke Walton and have two vacancies entering the 2019 NBA Draft and free agency.
When the Lakers meet with former Cleveland Cavaliers leader, Tyronn Lue and Philadelphia 76's assistant coach Monty Williams to replace Walton, the Golden State Warrior president of basketball operations Bob Myers has been named as a potential candidate to replace Johnson.
It seems, however, that Myers does not leave the warriors anytime soon, according to Monte Poole of NBC Sports Bay Area:
Me: What are you doing here day?
Bob: What do you mean?
Me: Don't you have lunch with (Lakers controlling owner) Jeanie Buss?
Bob: Oh, right. Almost forgot. (Looking at her watch) I had to meet her at 2.
Myers then laughed at a laugh indicating that he is not eager to go anywhere anytime soon, even though there are days and nights when he probably wouldn't mind it.
It is important to note that the Lakers have not yet reached the owner Joe Lacob about Myers yet.
While Myers has ties to Los Angeles and can receive a significant increase, it's hard to see him leaving the league's current dynasty. After their Game 1
As for the Lakers, general manager Rob Pelinka, who performs the team's coaching search, will not hire a replacement for Johnson. If Pelinka eventually hires Lue or Williams, it will probably mean he has been promoted or received more power as general manager.
