Lakers looking at Lue, Williams for head job

Walton's contract with the Kings reportedly aligns with Divac's contract, which goes through the 2022-23 season.

The whirlwind week of change continued for the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday as the organization parted ways with head coach Luke Walton.

If the Lakers have already signed their new head coach by the time you are reading this you can still apply the things we list and determine whether or not the new coach displays these traits.

Two reports say the Lakers are starting the process with the two names that quickly surfaced after - actually, before - Walton was gone: Tyronn Lue and Monty Williams. "This franchise and the city will always be special to me and my family".

The Kings have a ton of young talent and seem like an ideal fit for Walton, following his disappointing tenure in Los Angeles.

Walton replaces Dave Joerger, who was sacked on Thursday after he compiled a record of 98-148 with the Kings. "If it's not, as we have witnessed with the Lakers, there's going to be casualties and usually the coach is the first one".

The result will give the NCAA Tournament its first first-time champion since coach Billy Donovan won it all with Florida in 2006. Virginia squandered a 10-point lead down the stretch, Auburn took a 61-57 lead with 17 seconds left and the Cavs looked cooked.

As for the Lakers, it looks like they will be holding onto Pelinka. However, it has since been reported Walton was essentially fired and hoped to remain with the team.

The tumultuous 2018-19 Los Angeles Lakers season may be over, but the circus surrounding the club continues.

The Lakers medical staff was under scrutiny as a litany of injuries to key players plagued the team this season. As only the top eight teams in each conference make the playoffs, the Lakers will miss the postseason.

"They're losing one of the best human beings in the National Basketball Association". "He was fun, he was a hell of a coach to play for and I just told him in the meeting I had a great time this year learning from him as well and the challenge that he gave to me this year".

Many considered him the unofficial Coach of the Year for his guidance of the then-champion Warriors at the start of the 2015-16 season in place of an ailing Steve Kerr.
