Over the past week or so, the fate of head coach Mike D’Antoni has been up in the air with no clear indication on whether the Los Angeles Lakers will keep him on the sidelines for next season.

Reportedly, the Lakers brass may have made the decision to keep D’Antoni moving forward according to Mark Heisler of the OC Register:

After 10 days of soul searching, the key figures in Lakers management are agreed on bringing back D’Antoni for a third season as coach, a source with knowledge of the deliberations told the Register.

Although no official announcement has been made by the Lakers organization, it appears D’Antoni will remain in the team’s plans of at least one more season. D’Antoni’s contract for next season is guaranteed at the amount of $4 million to go along with a team option for the following season.

With D’Antoni now apparently in the fold heading into the off-season, the questions remains on whether Pau Gasol will re-sign with the team and what free agents the Lakers may be targeting to fit his system.

There’s no doubt about the fact that retaining D’Antoni will have an impact on the players that return and the players that show interest in joining the team in free agency.

    What the fuck is happening to L.A. sports? Dodgers aren’t televised, Jim Buss doing the best impression of the Clippers of yester-year, the Clippers owner crapping out racist, disgusting shit. Oh and we don’t even have a football team. Good luck Kings!

    20 years ago I’m was partners with my brother, but he kept on doing the wrong things. Pissing off customers, losing money, IRS audits. So I disassociated. Man was my family angry with me, but it was the best move I’ve ever made. After time it smoothed out with the family. He’s still paying huge fines. I did really well until the Oligarchy.

    Jeannie take my advice. Force Jim’s resignation, and fire D’Antoni or your company is in for a world of hurt.

    Just when we think there is some sort of hope that this FO will begin the healing process……. WHAM…. another one to the teeth of we the fans. So, what now? Kiss off another season? It’s getting darker and darker in Lakerland.

    This some bullshit he can’t coach wtf is wrong with Lakers organization

  • LakersHeatBeef

    The Lakers FO obviously sees something in Mike D’Antoni to keep him around.I look for a much better smoother season and the Lakers FO must sign some big time players and also draft a top rated prospect.MDA needs players.

    I support the Lakers, no matter who the coach is. I’d prefer it not be D’Antoni but will support my team regardless. Go Lakers!

    I’ve been a Laker’s fan since the day they got here, and we’ve endured some bad seasons through the years. I am a believer that Mike D’Antoni’s system is not conducive to any team winning a NBA title. If the Lakers keep him this next season I will not be an active fan, and I expect many others will do so as well.

  • Crenshaw On My Shirt

    And this clown has the AUDACITY to basically demand that the team picks up his option so he coaches the team for 2 more seasons. Unbelievable. My Lakers are crumbling before my eyes, this shit is sad

  • Clinton Uba

    Mark Medina, Serena Winters and the rest of the most reliable sources said that the Laker front office haven’t meet with D’Antoni yet. So whatever RUMORS about MDA you have read is only RUMORS. Y’all just making yourselves go crazy.

    He should be fired by now, so it looks like, our FO is planing on keeping him for one more year.Personally, I can not take it. Another season like this with intentionally tanking all season long, then just failing short to get one of the top 3 draft pics is very, very disappointing to me.If you are tanking, you have to tank to the end, same as the Bucks and the 76-ers were doing. And because of this stupid coach, we are going to lose many of our own FA’s and we will not be able to attract any good free agents from the market this summer. That is total failure to me.Lakers sucks.
