Montrezl Harrell is not comfortable with being the starting center of the Los Angeles Lakers.

According to Lakers head coach Frank Vogel, Harrell ‘prefers to come off the bench’ for the defending champions.

“Frank Vogel says Montrezl Harrell told him that he “prefers to come off the bench” tonight. He’s more comfortable in that role,” Ryan Ward of Lakers Nation reports.

Harrell has been a starter for the Lakers only once this season. He is averaging 13.5 points and 6.3 rebounds.
