Should Luke Walton Already Be On The Hot Seat?

Luka duels LeBron Wes Matthews’ perplexing play and 6 more things from Mavs-Lakers

League sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Dave McMenamin that Johnson's message to Walton increased the pressure on the coach to deliver winning results sooner rather than later, an about-face from Johnson's public comments regarding patience at the outset of training camp.

ESPN said Johnson had "admonished" Walton during a meeting on Tuesday, saying the Lakers legend had adopted an "aggressive tone" with the coach.

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. - Los Angeles Lakers coach Luke Walton says he believes he has a "great relationship with management" and does not feel like he is "going anywhere".

The Los Angeles Lakers returned home from a two-game road trip with a pair of losses to add to their record, falling to the Spurs 110-106 on Saturday and the Timberwolves 124-120 on Monday.

Asked by reporters Saturday about the meeting, LeBron James said his focus and the team's remain exclusively on winning basketball games.

Asked if he feels he has job security, Walton replied, "I feel like I'm coming down here to do my job and coach".

"We're still in the real early stages", he said.

"It actually never even gets to me really, so it's not a big deal for us".

Walton insisted that he remained in regular communication with the front office and that his meeting with Johnson had been routine. "This is something we do all the time". "We know this is going to happen".

With a three-time National Basketball Association champion, four-time MVP and 14-time All-Star like James on the team's roster and a host of young talent, Johnson expects significant improvements from the Lakers. Obviously, we had the unexpected one when we had the suspensions, so we had a lineup change there....
