More on this storyline

When the decision was made to fire Vogel, sources say his handling of Westbrook and the inability to find a way to make him a more productive part of the program were among the factors that played a big part. There was a strong sense that it was on Vogel to make the Westbrook experiment work, and the fact that it didn’t lead to questions about whether Westbrook had been put in a position to succeed. That sure smells like the hope of a Russ revival to me. And how’s this for a tidbit to tie this thread up: Jackson is known to have been a fan of Westbrook’s throughout his career. Sources say Phil Jackson has no interest in taking on this coaching job (or any other) himself — let’s just stop that rumor right here — but his view of Westbrook is relevant. As we’ve established, Jackson’s voice matters again. -via The Athletic / May 5, 2022

Josh Lewenberg: Masai said he’s been getting calls about Adrian Griffin, among other Raptors assistants. It would appear one of those calls was from the Lakers. “I think Adrian is right there on the cusp of becoming a head coach in this league”- Ujiri on Griffin yesterday. -via Twitter @JLew1050 / May 4, 2022
