Montrezl Harrell opened up about his role with the Los Angeles Lakers and whether he wants to be a starter or come off the bench.

Harrell admitted he prefers to come off the bench for the defending champions and not be in the Lakers’ starting lineup.

The versatile big man has played in all Lakers games this season, but he has been a starter only once.

Harrell was unstoppable for the Lakers against the Sacramento Kings, with 26 points (13/20 shooting) and 11 rebounds in 33 minutes off the bench.
