Will the Lakers hire Ty Lue as next Coach?

Will the Lakers hire Ty Lue as next Coach?

Walton and the Lakers mutually agreed to part ways Friday after the team finished with a 37-45 record.

Kings general manager Vlade Divac was reported to have met Walton on Saturday and was in the "late stages" of finalising a multi-year deal.

Don't forget, Lue spent his first three seasons as a player with the Lakers winning a couple of rings in the process in 2000 and 2001. He still had two years remaining on his five-year deal.

"We would like to thank Luke for his dedicated service over the last three years. We wish Luke and his family the best of luck moving forward".

The Cavs named Lue head coach in the middle of the 2016 Championship season after the firing of Blatt. "This franchise and the city will always be special to me and my family". "Divac and Walton are meeting this weekend", ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports. The conversations didn't go very far, however, as it was obvious to both sides that the Lakers had planned to fire Walton before Johnson abruptly stepped down on Tuesday night.

The roster in LA was constructed very poorly by Johnson and Pelinka.

"I feel for Luke".

"I want to thank Jeanie Buss and the Buss family for giving me the opportunity to coach the Lakers".

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

"If I didn't know any better, I'd have thought that they were setting Luke up to fail [with that roster]", one National Basketball Association assistant coach said. The Lakers won 26 games in Walton's first season and 35 in his second.

The former Lakers player's position had been the subject of speculation throughout the season which intensified after the team missed the playoffs for a sixth straight season.

Walton worked as an assistant with the Warriors from 2014-16.
