Coach Frank Vogel continues to search for alternatives to the Los Angeles Lakers’ game dynamics for the 2021-22 NBA season. After three preseason games, he has found rookie player Austin Reaves a possible solution to several of his second-unit needs.
“He has great instincts for the game and contributes to a winning team. He can create plays and define them, create space, and facilitate shots. If he is going to play as he has been doing, it is an excellent piece,” revealed Vogel at a press conference.
