Former Cavs head coach Ty Lue frontrunner to coach Lakers

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

If, and when, his top candidate, Luke Walton, became available Divac would act quickly to make Walton his new head coach.

They're sitting at home on the first day of the 2019 NBA Playoffs, and no longer have a president or head coach after Magic Johnson abruptly stepped down in weird fashion and the team subsequently fired Luke Walton.

If the Lakers have already signed their new head coach by the time you are reading this you can still apply the things we list and determine whether or not the new coach displays these traits.

The club said his departure after three years in charge was by mutual consent. "We wish Luke and his family the best of luck moving forward". The pair were teammates on the Lakers.

"This franchise and the city will always be special to me and my family", Walton said in a statement.

Walton compiled a 98-148 record in three seasons with the Lakers, the same record Joerger had with the Kings.

Luckily for Kerr, the state of the Warriors is the polar opposite of that of the Lakers.

Per Sam Amick of The Athletic, Kings' GM Vlade Divac is expected to reach out to Walton to schedule an interview for Sacramento's head coaching vacancy.

Despite everything, the Lakers went 15-8 in their 23 games with James, Ingram and Ball all healthy.

While Johnson preached patience in the preseason knowing that it would take time for the new roster to mesh, Johnson admonished Walton in a meeting just six games into the season. Despite having LeBron James this season, the Lakers still went 37-45, missing the playoffs. However, it has since been reported Walton was essentially fired and hoped to remain with the team.

As for the Lakers, it looks like they will be holding onto Pelinka. L.A. was just 17-31 the rest of the way as James missed 17 games and was in and out of the lineup until he was shut down for the season in late March. "Obviously it was frustrating, the injuries, the inability to have a consistent lineup was frustrating and hard for them". They're losing somebody who players believe in and players that want to play for. Lue was LeBron's coach in Cleveland and won a title with him. Mid-season previous year, the Cavs fired then-head coach Tyronn Lue.
