The key cog in Phil Jackson’s coaching staff, Derek Fisher, is in place. The rest of the bench figures to be filled out shortly, and it looks like it’ll be headlined by Kurt Rambis, who worked as a Lakers assistant last season.
Fisher’s staff is very likely to include Kurt Rambis. Others in mix: Rick Fox, Luke Walton, Bill Cartwright.
