Lakers Rumors: George Karl Received Consideration For Coaching Job

The search for a head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers has been ongoing since Mike D’Antoni resigned back on April 20. Although many candidates were interviewed for the coaching vacancy, Byron Scott has been offered the job and is currently in negotiations with the team.

One former NBA Coach of the Year that didn’t receive much interest from teams with coaching vacancies is George Karl. The 63-year-old has been out of job ever since being fired by the Denver Nuggets after earning Coach of the Year honors back in 2013.

According to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne, the Lakers were giving Karl more consideration for the coaching vacancy than what had been reported:

Karl has had his fair share of health issues over the course of his career battling cancer back in 2010. Karl won his battle with cancer and continued coaching the Nuggets with some impressive results.

With the Lakers seemingly on the verge of hiring Scott, Karl will likely have to continue waiting for his next opportunity in the NBA. Scott has been the frontrunner to land the coaching job in Los Angeles for quite some time and it comes as no surprise that talks with the team has progressed to this point.

It appears to be only a matter of time before the team announces the hiring of Scott.

As long as both sides see eye-to-eye during contract negotiations, Scott will become the new head coach of the Lakers officially locking up the last head coaching vacancy in the league.
