Luke Walton is out, and while Ty Lue may be the frontrunner, Sixers assistant Monty Williams is expected to be a strong candidate for the job, as Sam Amick reports:
Monty Williams is held in high regard by the Kings as well and is a candidate, but source confirms that he'll now have a very real crack at the Lakers job as well. Monty coached Kings assistant GM Peja Stojakovic in New Orleans. — Sam Amick (@sam_amick) April 12, 2019
Lue makes more sense as we sit here today assuming that is the choice of LeBron James. It is very telling, however, we are hearing about two coaches nobody really considers game-changers when it comes to the Lakers’ job.
