Frank Vogel shared his excitement for the season debut of Talen Horton-Tucker, who went for 17 points in the win vs the Spurs (106-114).

The veteran coach said it was great to see Horton-Tucker back to the floor and revealed the young guard will have a big role in the rotation.

“He looked really good. He puts a lot of pressure on the rim, which just helps everything for us offensively. It’s great to have him back on both sides (of the ball).

He’s going to be a big part of what we do. We invested in him this summer for a reason. We believe in that young man,” Frank Vogel told reporters, via Harrison Faigen of Silver Screen and Roll.

For his part, Talen Horton-Tucker noted he only wants to work as hard as he can in order to help the Lakers claim another NBA championship/
