Will the Lakers hire Ty Lue as next Coach?

Shortly after the news broke, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr was asked about the move and gave his thoughts on Walton, his former assistant coach and good friend. Also, this time the Lakers should look for a little more shooting.

LOS ANGELES - A tumultuous week continued for the Los Angeles Lakers as the team announced that it has mutually parted ways with head coach Luke Walton on Friday.

A formal announcement is expected as soon as this weekend, sources told ESPN, as Walton is meeting with Kings general manager Vlade Divac.

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr called Walton "one of the best human beings in the National Basketball Association".

It did not take long for a clear frontrunner to be identified after Luke Walton's departure as coach of the Los Angeles Lakers.

Sports talk personality Skip Bayless said earlier he hoped Lakers owner Jeanie Buss would keep Walton to spite its star player and Magic Johnson.

Walton and Divac are reportedly now in the late stages of finalizing a multi-year agreement for the head coaching position.

That has changed. The Kings have a talented young team featuring De'Aaron Fox, Buddy Hield, Bogdan Bogdanovic, Harrison Barnes, Marvin Bagley III and Harry Giles III.

The Lakers won 37 games this season and missed the playoffs for an unprecedented sixth consecutive year.

Stylistically, Walton is considered a flawless fit for the uptempo system the Kings unleashed on the league this season. Divac did just that, finding his new coach two days after dismissing Joerger. "They did everything right, I'll say that". "I want my coach on the same page".

In Williams' Pelicans tenure, he had a 173-221 record and made the playoffs twice, in his first and last seasons there.

While LeBron James does not get to pick the next Lakers coach, his seal of approval matters. If, and when, his top candidate, Luke Walton, became available Divac would act quickly to make Walton his new head coach.

Ball, who sat most of the second half of the season with an ankle injury, was slated to have surgery without the Lakers' knowledge, the report states.
