The Lakers opened the season 0-3 and after consecutive wins, suffered back-to-back losses to the San Antonio Spurs and Minnesota Timberwolves. Mixed results have been accompanied by subpar defense and several lineup and rotation changes.

While the reported meeting is garnering national headlines, it’s hardly out of the ordinary. “I have not read the article. Obviously, I’ve heard about it,” Walton said after practice.

“I will tell you this, Magic, myself, Rob, Jeanie, we are in constant communication. This isn’t all of a sudden there’s an emergency meeting. This is something we do all the time.”

Walton would not divulge any specifics of his meeting with Johnson, saying, “What we discuss in our meetings is between us.”

Lakers owner Jeanie Buss has long been a staunch supporter of Walton, who was hired by the previous front office headed by Jim Buss and Mitch Kupchack. While not hand-picked by Johnson or current Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka, the sentiment is they too supported Walton.

That may still very well hold true, even if Johnson critically and emphatically raised a sense of urgency. At minimum, Walton is not concerned about job security a mere eight games into his third season at the helm.

“I’ve got enough going on,” he said. “I feel like I have a great relationship with management. I’m down here to do my job and coach, and I don’t feel like I’m going anywhere, no.”
