Two new names surface in the Lakers’ search for a coach
After interviewing two assistant coaches for their head coaching position, the Lakers have spoken to a pair of former NBA head coaches, according to people with knowledge of the situation who were not authorized to speak publicly about the matter.
Jerry West’s threat of legal action against HBO over his depiction in ‘Winning Time’ may seem implausible, but legal experts aren’t so sure.
Stotts didn’t coach last season after spending the previous nine seasons in Portland. With the Trail Blazers, Stotts went 402-318, leading them to the Western Conference finals in 2019.
Jackson, who is the lead analyst along with Jeff Van Gundy for ABC and ESPN, hasn’t coached since 2014. In three seasons with the Warriors, he went 121-109 before being replaced by Steve Kerr.
