“When the time is there, we’ll sit down,” Walton said. “We’re going to obviously coach this team the way that we think is best for our guys to win and gives us the best chance of growing in a certain direction for the future. But obviously, we would love to have Magic’s input on those type of things.”

Earlier in the day, Johnson told CBS in an interview that it would likely take the Lakers three to five years to rebuild. Upon being relayed those comments, Walton said his focus was on Tuesday’s game against the Sacramento Kings, but he admitted the timetable seemed standard.
“I’m not really — I’m more concerned with our game tomorrow,” Walton said. “Three to five years? Yeah, I mean, that sounds normal for our rebuild.”

After picking up a technical foul in the second quarter â€” his 17th of the season â€” DeMarcus Cousins was the favorite to be ejected during the Sacramento Kingsâ€™ matchup against the New Orleans Pelicans Sunday.
But it was first-year guard Buddy Hield who got the boot after a bizarre sequence of events left Cousins confused and sent officials to the replay booth.
The Knicks snapped a four-game losing streak and avoided what could have been the first 0-5 home stretch in franchise history. Kristaps Porzingis shot just 4-for-10 from the field, but recorded four blocks and made three of his five three-point attempts. New York outscored the Spurs by 20 in all lineups with Porzingis on the floor.
â€œThe blocked shots were huge,â€ Hornacek said. â€œThere was a stretch, when the game was close, they probably thought they had a nice shot but KP came and blocked it. I thought he was more aggressive.â€
