Report: Los Angeles Lakers Hiring a Coach in a Week or Two

by July 15, 2014

The Lakers don’t appear to be in any particular rush to hire a head coach. ESPN reports that they may get around to it in a week or two, or y’know, whenever:

The Los Angeles Lakers expect to hire a coach in the next week or two, but they do not consider the interview process to be finished, according to a league source.


While former Lakers great Byron Scott has been considered the leading candidate for the position for weeks, having gone through multiple interviews with management and having received an endorsement from none other than Kobe Bryant last week, even he likely would need another interview before being named coach, according to the source.
