However, there's no guarantee the Los Angeles Lakers will be the team reaps the benefits of Ball's big summer. The team called it a mutual agreement.

Lue was the Cleveland Cavaliers coach who led the Cavs to three-straight NBA Finals - and one title - with James leading the way.

Sports talk personality Skip Bayless said earlier he hoped Lakers owner Jeanie Buss would keep Walton to spite its star player and Magic Johnson.

A potential power struggle instead ended with both men out of their jobs after this wild week.

Walton had been at the head coach of the Lakers since 2017.

Walton previously served as an assistant coach with the Golden State Warriors during their ascension from 2014-16. The two sides agreed to move on from each other after just two seasons with Walton as the head coach. But again, he was dependent on circumstances, just like all of us are.

Under United States Golf Association rules, a ball isn't considered to be "in play" until it's actually hit from the tee area. Matt Kuchar , Ian Poulter and the caddies replied in unison that the shot wasn't intentional and there was no penalty.

Nonetheless, the Lakers will look to alleviate the franchise dysfunction by scouting the best available coaches in the upcoming days while 16 other teams compete in the National Basketball Association playoffs. But the wheels came off in spectacular fashion when James and Rajon Rondo were injured during that game, sending the Lakers into a tailspin that they would never recover from. "The guys fought every night". The franchise signed James last offseason, and expectations rose. The former second overall pick suffered a season-ending ankle injury January 19 against the Houston Rockets and saw declines in several per game averages from his rookie year, including points, rebounds, and assists.

Pelinka and Johnson accompanied Ball to his doctor appointments from that point forward, per Charania. Several Lakers acknowledged the shadowy pursuit's impact on their play. "They were anxious where they were going to end up".

Update: The Lakers have made the news official with a press release.

"I feel for Luke". "They did everything right, I'll say that".

The Lakers' next coach will be their sixth since the retirement of Phil Jackson in 2011. The Lakers announced the news in a statement, freeing up the team to go find a new coach and Walton to find a new team. He is rumored to be a candidate for the vacant Kings opening.
