LeBron James as Lakers point guard? ‘No imminent plan,’ coach Frank Vogel says

New Lakers coach Frank Vogel has a pointed response about LeBron James playing point guard in 2019-20: Pump the brakes.

Appearing on ESPN2 at halftime of the Lakers’ Las Vegas Summer League game Wednesday night, Vogel refuted a Yahoo Sports report this week that LeBron will run the point.

“There’s no decisions made on our starting lineup, no imminent plan to start LeBron at the point guard spot,” Vogel said (via MSN.com). “A lot of different lineups and combinations have been discussed, but it’s really way too early for any of that.”

If anything there has to be a grain of truth to what Vogel says if only because the Lakers have only in recent days put most of the finishing touches on their roster for next season. Discussions about who will play where and when are still to come. There’s also this: The roster is dotted with versatile players, so Vogel will have plenty of rotation options, including using James alongside Danny Green in the backcourt.
