To win this year, many people will become free agents or quit their contracts, and some are expected to leave, but now there is good news that LeBron’s close friend and Lakers assistant Phil Handy firmly stated that he will next season Stay in the team.
This year, Handy has appeared in the Finals for the sixth consecutive year. Except for the Raptors last season, he spent the rest of his time with LeBron. During this period, he also got 2 championship rings, it is precisely because of his excellent work, before the Nets and other teams extended an olive branch to him, hoping that he will be the team assistant.
But in a recent interview with TV, Handy said that he will not go anywhere next season and will stay with the Lakers.
"I am a member of the Lakers. The next thing I have to wait for is to answer the phone call or text message from Vogel and tell me what to do next. Now, I just sit down and take a break and enjoy the total work we have worked hard. Champion, uncompress yourself."
"We work very hard, so many people think that we never rest. So now I have to relax myself, leave the game temporarily, and go to a place where I can relax my body and mind. I will also enjoy being with family and friends. When we are together, we will prepare for the next job assigned by coach Vogel and welcome the arrival of the next season."
Handy is known for training and training young people, so the Lakers may let him bring him this year's rookie Tucker and the rookies to be selected in the future. In addition, the Lakers may also let him take Kuzma and Caruso training in the offseason to continue to polish the skills of these two players.
