Lakers News: Mitch Kupchak Says Kobe ‘Really Won’t Weigh In On’ Coach

The Lakers are currently searching for a new name to roam the sidelines next season. The front office is taking its time deciding on a new coach after the disastrous tenures of Mike Brown and Mike D’Antoni.

Kobe Bryant, who has been sidelined with a broken knee cap since early December, has recently stated that he hopes the franchise will consider his thoughts on the next coach. However, according to ESPN, Mitch Kupchak does not intend to talk to Kobe on the subject:

As Bryant told Jimmy Kimmel, he was not consulted in the hiring of both Brown and D’Antoni. Since neither of those coaches saw their contracts out, Bryant was hoping to be able to give his thoughts with the front office as they made their latest choice.

It’s surprising that Kupchak has come out numerous times saying that Bryant’s opinion will not be considered when it comes to making front office decisions, such as the trading of Pau Gasol and now the head coaching position.

If the Lakers want to compete in the upcoming season, they must make sure they pick a coach that meshes well, not only Bryant, but the team as well. Bryant is in the twilight of his career, and is searching for a coach to help him bring home his much coveted sixth ring.

Bryant is already working out at the team facility, and Kupchak believes he will be ready for opening night. Unfortunately for Bryant, the man roaming the sidelines that night may not be the one Kobe had in mind.
