Walton advised reporters Friday he feels he has an important relationship with administration and he would not suppose he is going anyplace.
When requested if he looks like he has job safety, Walton stated: “I really feel like I am coming down right here to do my job and coach and I do not really feel like I am going anyplace, no.”

The query comes after ESPN reported earlier Thursday that Lakers president Magic Johnson reprimanded Walton for a way the workforce has began this season.
Johnson made Walton conscious there may be speedy stress on him to ship a successful workforce and the report says, “Proof is mounting that Walton’s job safety finally relies upon upon his skill to considerably enhance upon a 3-5 document to begin the season.”
“We’re in fixed communication so this isn’t new hastily there’s an emergency assembly,” Walton defined in response to the report. “That is one thing we do on a regular basis. What we talk about in our conferences is between us.”
The Lakers have excessive expectations this season after signing LeBron James throughout the offseason and Walton hasn’t discovered a lineup for the workforce but as a number of of the starters have missed video games to suspensions and harm.
The Lakers have not made the playoffs since 2012-13 and the workforce hasn’t had a successful season below Walton since he took over on the helm beginning in 2016. The Lakers went 26-56 and 35-47 over the previous two seasons.
