In news that should make Lebron James smile, the Los Angeles Lakers and head coach Luke Walton have agreed to a mutual parting of the ways. The team made the announcement on Friday afternoon that after three years Walton would no longer be their head man.
The move comes as little shock, as Walton’s job security became tenuous the day that Lebron James was signed. Walton was never Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka’s “guy”,and it was obvious that James, Johnson nor Pelinka wanted him there.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports that former Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue and Philadelphia 76ers assistant Monty Williams are top candidates for the now open Lakers vacancy.
