Lakers Hiring Byron Scott ‘Could Happen Next Week’

It has been almost three months since Mike D’Antoni resigned on April 30 and the Los Angeles Lakers are still without a head coach. Fortunately, the team seems to have finally found their man in Byron Scott, but contract negotiations could go into next week, according to Mike Bresnahan of the L.A. Times:

“It could be a few hours, or it could happen next week,” said the person, who asked not to be identified.

Scott has been the frontrunner to become the Lakers’ new head coach throughout the entire process. Many were uncertain why it took so long for the team to extend an offer to the former NBA Coach of the Year, but now it may be only a matter of time before he signs on the dotted line.

In the meantime, the Lakers were busy this past week with the team introducing three new players. Ed Davis, Jeremy Lin, and Carlos Boozer were introduced by the Lakers over the last three days during press conferences at the team’s practice facility in El Segundo.

Along with Boozer, Davis and Lin, the Lakers will also have two other new faces on the roster in the form of rookies Julius Randle and Jordan Clarkson. Randle was arguably the team’s biggest addition to the squad this summer while Clarkson put on a show during the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas recently.

With the exception of the five players mentioned above, the Lakers roster will look a lot like it did last season. Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash are set to return as well as Robert Sacre, Xavier Henry, Wesley Johnson, Ryan Kelly, Jordan Hill and Nick Young.
