Vogel needs to sub in Trezz the minute Ayton goes out and take him out when he comes back in. I believe he can score vs their backups. He will be needed for sure if ad can’t go

Trez has had some big games for us and I expect him to potentially have some going forward. Its up to Frank not to put him in a position that he is not capable of handling. This is why many fans have been saying he should be playing with MG (I still do not know why Frank does not see this).

Let's face it, we have no answer for Ayton. Guy is shooting 85%. That ridiculous. We just are outmatched now. Even if AD plays, Phoenix will exploit his injury. They aren't dumb. We can't even stop Cameron Payne. We have no perimeter defense. Even if we somehow get past them the Suns, we are definitely not getting out of the Western Conference. It's just the reality. We are too banged up and LeBron can't shoulder this team this time around even though he said it in his post game interview. He knows the reality. I mean he complained about the foul from Crowder and Crowder just gave him that look of please bruh LOL. I hate to say it, but Phoenix knows they got this. They just being humble about it.

I came here to post exactly this. He is now basically our #3 option after Lebron and Dennis. We need to use him as such but avoid him playing against Ayton

Trezz should be playing instead of Morris. Vogel not doing it because he still refuses to believe you can play Gasol and Harrell together is only gonna hurt the Lakers. Particularly in spurts where they can't find their offense and LeBron isn't in the game.

I agree with several of these posts. We need points. The magic number is at minimum 110 points. Trez can get us buckets and clean up that glass. If Lebron is sitting, I would like to see Schroeder, Trez and Gasol out there working together with a couple of shooters.

If I had to guess it's two things. They don't want Trez going up against Ayton, and they don't want the Suns to keep him in constant pick and roll. With AD out though he could have an opportunity.

He needs to be aggressive though if he gets it and the team needs to look for him on offense when he's in the game. If you don't go to him on offense then he's just a defensive liability who is allergic to defensive rebounds. If you are going to play him you have to go to him on offense.

Ayton is shooting 81% from the floor. Give Trez a shot. He can't do any worse than the rest of our slugs.

And the worst part they're almost all dunks or lobs. Nothing special...Lakers need to push him out and the guards need to stop getting beat or if there's a switch someone please pick up Ayton.

And here we are... 4 games in going to game 5 and Ayton has NOT been in any sort of foul trouble. I would like to see our bigs and/or anyone that gets in the paint to go right at him

Great post. Our bigs are soft and Ayton is having a picnic underneath the basket. We need someone to at least lean on him and keep this f'er off the boards.

Trezz is better than Drummond. Vogel needed to play him more.

Trezz represented the last use of our full MLE.

Vogel is great at a lot of things, but his misuse of Trez this year is definitely a scar on his resume. Last year's 6th man of the year rendered completely useless in Vogel's playbook. Maybe he and Pelinka should have discussed a bit before the signing.

There has to be something else going on here that we don't know about.

Maybe they're trying to push Trezz out the door by ticking him off so he'll decline his option.

It’s one of those years. Please get rid of the losing, empty stats players.

Harrell isn’t cut out to be a Laker.

Vogel idiotically refuses to believe he can play Harrell at backup 4 and Gasol at backup 5. That's Vogel's mistake and it should cost him his coaching job.

True. In a game where they needed any kind of offensive spark, Vogel not utilizing Trez was questionable.

If you look at our last 20 games to end the season, the coaching staff essentially rendered Trez useless. Dismantling any confidence, role or sense of purpose this man has for our team.

Did we all just expect him to waltz into the playoffs ready to unleash points, rebounds and energy after we essentially neutered him to end the regular season?

The Lakers are squarely responsible for failing to maximize his skill set.

Mark my words, he will perform like he did last year for a different team next year, and we will all be sitting around saying "damn, we could use a high energy scorer like Trez".

Complete and utter BS on the part of the coaching staff ...... and a waste of our f*ing MLE.

When AD2 came Trez lost his job. Soon both may be gone. AD 2 has been a huge disappointment.

Keep Trez, get rid of Drummond and Kuz and bring in better perimeter defenders and shooters
