Los Angeles Lakers were surprised by Monty Williams accepting Phoenix Suns job

Larry Brown Sports

The Los Angeles Lakers’ coaching search hasn’t gotten off to the best of starts, according to a new report.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski on The Woj Pod, Monty Williams was the Lakers’ first choice to become their new head coach, and they did not take seriously the possibility that Williams might accept the Phoenix Suns’ job instead.

“They were ready to move toward Monty Williams, and I think the Lakers never really took seriously the possibility he was going to take that Suns job, and he did,” Wojnarowski said. “And I know it surprised them.”
