According to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN Los Angeles, head coach Mike D’Antoni has resigned from his position with the Los Angeles Lakers. This comes after two seasons of underwhelming results, including a franchise-record for losses in 2013-14.
This resulted in D’Antoni stepping down and the Lakers becoming the latest team to enter the search for a new head coach.
There’s something of a scarcity of recently proven or established coaches. This creates a very intriguing pool of options who could potentially symbolize the direction of the organization.
The question on every fans’ mind is simple and unavoidable: who are the best realistic options to be the next head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers?
