You may have wondered what is Luke Walton doing these days?
Well, in actuality you probably forget he exist but Walton is a Lakers studio analyst now. He pursued this job after realizing no team was interested in his services.
He spent most of last season on Cleveland’s bench, appearing in only 50 games but Walton is still hopeful he’ll get another shot.
“I want to play still,” said Walton, who has already met with the Lakers’ D-League affiliate, the L.A. D-Fenders, to discuss fulfilling a player development role that will allow him to work out with the team along with his TV duties. “I’ve trained all summer as if I was going to get a call. The call never came, so, I’m going to keep working out … If nothing happens this year, then I’ll probably admit that it’s officially over.”
Expect Walton to make his retirement official sooner rather than later.
