Sources: Lakers to talk with Vogel again soon

Former Orlando Magic and Indiana Pacers coach Frank Vogel made a strong impression in his interview with the Los Angeles Lakers, and the sides are planning to talk again soon about the team's head-coaching job, league sources told ESPN.

After the Lakers' top two targets, Monty Williams and Ty Lue, rejected the franchise's offers, the team reset its search and Vogel is emerging as a serious candidate, sources said. Vogel flew to Los Angeles on Thursday and met with Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka and his front office and had detailed discussions on how Vogel would approach the possibility of taking over what has become a volatile situation.
