Jordan Clarkson enjoying working with the new Lakers coaching staff

While many players and fans alike are enjoying (or dreading) the downtime of the NBA offseason, some of the players are still hard at work. Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson has spent little time during the offseason resting up. Instead, he has constantly been in the gym, trying to improve his game for the 2016-17 season, even after landing a new four-year, $50 million contract.

This upcoming season will feature a new head coaching staff, led by Luke Walton. In a Thursday workout at the Lakers’ practice facility, Clarkson made it well-known on his snapchat account that he’s enjoying the new staff in place.

In the video, you can see what appears to be Jesse Mermuys, who coached the Lakers summer league team. D’Angelo Russell and the rest of the young core have also had very positive feedback regarding Walton, Mermuys and the rest of the staff.

The coaching staff in place for the past two seasons was a hot topic surrounding the Lakers, for all the wrong reasons. With Walton and his staff in charge now, a fresh start appears to have the players on the roster excited for what the future may hold.
