Lakers reportedly could be eyeing these 2 candidates to replace Luke Walton


The formula on how to construct a winning team around LeBron James was solved years ago by the Miami Heat.

So. who would the Lakers want to replace him if and when? The Lakers have struggled as a team and sit 11th in the Western Conference with a 34-42 record - 10 games back from Steven Adams' Oklahoma City Thunder, who hold the eighth and final playoff spot.

Missing the 2018-19 postseason certainly does not bode well for the job security of current Los Angeles Lakers head coach Luke Walton.

Saudi Arabia condemns US Golan move
The French foreign ministry stated that it did not recognize the Israeli annexation [in 1981] of the Golan Heights and that Mr. A United Nations spokesman said that Secretary-General Antonio Guterres was "clear that the status of Golan has not changed".

It's led to a weird situation where everyone talks about the job as if it's open, essentially just ignoring the fact that Walton exists and is now coaching the team. All you have to do is surround James with good 3-and-D players and then find players who can defend the lane.

"I have been as critical of Luke Walton as anybody, I don't know if he's worse than Jason Kidd. And I think the year off helps clean up some things, too, just to refocus and have that energy".

Walton, however, told The Athletic this week he's not thinking that way. "And so if you ever have the opportunity to wear the purple and gold, you can't turn that down".

The experiment was surrounding James not with a fellow All-Star - after the Lakers never even got a chance to land Paul George, as they had been expected to - or shooters, but playmakers signed to one-year deals to keep their cap flexibility in line for this summer. Kidd described the Lakers franchise as one of the best in the world.

The Speaker "said Barr's job is to defend the president and Democrats should wait to see what's in the full report", Raju said. Barr then decided there was insufficient evidence Trump obstructed justice by trying to interfere with Mueller's probe.

However, the thought process was teams like the Houston Rockets showed they could not outshoot the two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors. "But I think, again, it takes time".

Kidd compiled a 139-152 record in his 291 games coached with the Milwaukee Bucks.

"You can't be in the middle, you got to be trying to develop those young guys or you got to be trying to win in the [NBA] playoffs. And, hopefully, somewhere down the road, I can have another star".
