Per the Los Angeles Times, the LA Lakers had an interview with Frank Vogel for the vacant head coaching position on Thursday (09/05).

According to the report, Vogel probably met with Lakers owner Jeanie Buss, general manager Rob Pelinka, co-owners Joey Buss (who runs the Lakers’ G League South Bay Lakers team) and Jesse Buss (the Lakers’ assistant general manager and director of scouting), chief operating officer Tim Harris, director of special projects Linda Rambis and senior advisor Kurt Rambis.

Vogel did not coach last season following two years with the Orlando Magic. The 45-year-old coach is the fifth candidate known to have interviewed for the position since the Lakers dismissed Luke Walton on April 12, following Tyronn Lue, Monty Williams, Juwan Howard and Jason Kidd.
