In a good way, the Los Angeles Lakers’ head coach Frank Vogel may be facing a huge problem ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.

After another impressive preseason performance, Talen Horton-Tucker could be on his way to secure his place in the Lakers’ rotational system.

“We have a very deep team. No minutes are guaranteed. If he keeps playing at a high level, that should push everyone else to play at a high level,” Vogel said, per Mike Trudell.

The former second-round draft pick played 41 minutes in a preseason game versus the Clippers to put up 33 points and 10 rebounds.

The Lakers seem to have the ability to cover for any absences, if necessary, and in a shortened season having a deep bench it’s a good quality.
