After a flagrant foul saw the Nuggets guard ejected versus the Lakers, Wayne Ellington took to Twitter to dish some strong words to Facundo Campazzo.
The Lakers’ disastrous season is officially over with a meaningless win over the Denver Nuggets. Malik Monk and Austin Reaves had excellent games but much of the talk around the game surrounded Frank Vogel’s position.
ESPN quoted sources as claiming the Lakers are set to fire the Lakers head coach on Monday after three seasons – and one title – with the franchise. However, amid all that was a beef between veteran Wayne Ellington and Facundo Campazzo, with the former making his feelings known on social media.
Facundo Campazzo ejected versus Lakers
Wayne Ellington had a stellar game against the Nuggets, finishing with 18 points off the bench. However, an incident with Facundo Campazzo overshadowed the performance.
The Nuggets guard was given a Flagrant 2 foul call and ejected from the game after pushing Ellington in the back. Ellington appeared to hit his head on teammate Wenyen Gabriel’s leg as he fell before lying on the court for a while. Thankfully, he was able to carry on.

Wayne Ellington threatens to ‘put hands’ on Facundo Campazzo
Ellington seemed ok but was clearly still reeling from the incident way after the game. He posted a message to Campazzo on Twitter, stating: “When I see you I’m putting my hands on you.”
Likely to be Frank Vogel’s last game in charge of the Lakers
It was a game that appears to have been Frank Vogel’s last game in charge of the Lakers. According to multiple reports, Vogel looks set to be fired on Monday (11 April) after the Lakers missed out on the final spot in the play-in tournament.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted: “Frank Vogel has coached his final game for the Lakers, a decision that’s expected to be shared with him as soon as Monday, sources tell ESPN. Lakers’ search expected to be lengthy and expansive with no clear initial frontrunner.”
