Will the Lakers hire Ty Lue as next Coach?

Luke Walton

Luke Walton

On Thursday, as reported by ESPN's Adrain Wojnarowski, Divac fired head coach Dave Joerger, as well as assistant general manager Brandon Williams and Chris Clark, their director of media relations.

Head coach Luke Walton of the Los Angeles Lakers during the National Basketball Association game against the Phoenix Suns at Talking Stick Resort Arena on October 24, 2018 in Phoenix, Arizona.

Walton spent three seasons as the helm of the Lakers and even though the team saw its best finish of that stretch last season, it's hard to consider the organization's campaign a success given the expectations after the arrival of LeBron James.

Walton, 39, reportedly was the coach the Kings coveted all along, but Sacramento wasn't considered an attractive destination at the time.

Pelinka and Johnson accompanied Ball to his doctor appointments from that point forward, per Charania.

The Warriors, of course, haven't just been going to the postseason every year, but getting all the way to the finals once they do. The Warriors (57-25) secured the top seeding in the Western Conference by winning six in a row before losing their season finale.

Steve Kerr feels for Luke Walton and Kerr shares what Los Angeles is losing by parting ways with Walton.

"I want to thank Jeanie Buss and the Buss family for giving me the opportunity to coach the Lakers".

The Kings have a ton of young talent and seem like an ideal fit for Walton, following his disappointing tenure in Los Angeles.

"They're losing one of the best human beings in the NBA", Kerr said. Collectively, Lakers players missed more than 210 games due to injuries and the team used more than 25 different starting lineups this season.

Walton worked as an assistant with the Warriors from 2014-16. He took over after the worst season in franchise history, a season with only 17 wins.
