Jordan began his career with the Sacramento Kings, but last coached for the Philadelphia 76ers. Still, his most productive seasons as a coach were during his tenure in Washington D.C. While with the Wizards, Jordan made it to the post-season four times and the team was very entertaining to watch.
Throughout his career, Jordan has a 42 winning percentage and will be a nice addition to the Lakers’ coaching staff.
