Vogel will be introduced to the Los Angeles media on May 20.

When prompted to discuss the supposed possibility that Philadelphia "may explore" trading Simmons to Los Angeles for James, Skip Bayless took the feckless discussion with co-host Shannon Sharpe to a new level of ridiculous.

The Los Angeles Lakers hired Frank Vogel as their head coach on Monday, confirming news that was widely reported Saturday.

Vogel's deal is reportedly for three years, according to ESPN.

"We are excited to add Frank Vogel as the next head coach of the Lakers", said Pelinka. "I look forward to coaching such phenomenal talent and bringing my strategic vision to the team".

Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka announced that he was delighted to welcome Vogel, and hinted that the move was a push to get the team back towards playoff contention.

The 45-year old Vogel worked for the organization before as an advance scout during the 2005-06 season.

He led the Pacers to five playoff appearances and back-to-back trips to the Eastern Conference Finals in 2013 and 2014. He has a career record of 304-291.

Instead, the Lakers moved forward and announced on Monday night that they had handed Vogel the task of rebuilding on a awful season previous year.

The Lakers missed out on the playoffs last season, after finishing tenth in the NBA's Western Conference. But we have heard a consistent theme coming from the Lakers front office: they think their problems start with LeBron James and the weight of his superstardom. Vogel will be the Lakers' sixth coach since Phil Jackson stepped down after the 2010-11 season.

The announcement follows multiple media reports at the weekend that Vogel would be the next head coach of a Lakers team led by National Basketball Association superstar LeBron James. He has a 183-190 record.

Then there were the self-inflicted wounds, starting with the destabilizing Anthony Davis sweepstakes.
