Lakers Rumors: Lakers, Kurt Rambis Moving Closer to Deal

The Lakers and former player and coach Kurt Rambis appear to be closing in on a reunion of sorts that would send Rambis back to the bench as a member of Mike D’Antoni’s staff.

According to Drew Garrison of SB Nation, the Lakers and Rambis are moving closer to a deal that would bring Rambis back to the Lakers as an assistant coach. This has been widely rumored recently, as Rambis has been seen with Mike D’Antoni and General Manager Mitch Kupchak watching the Lakers’ Summer League team in action in Las Vegas.

Though the deal with Rambis appears imminent, the role Rambis will serve on the staff remains unclear. In his previous terms with the Lakers, Rambis spent the majority of his time focusing on defensive scheming.

If Rambis does indeed sign on with the Lakers, it would be his third stint with the team, most recently serving under Phil Jackson from 2005-2009, helping bring the Lakers to two NBA Finals, in 2008 and 2009, the latter of which the Lakers won.

The reported near signing of Rambis to help coach the Lakers does indeed suggest that Phil Jackson may be having a larger impact on the Lakers’ basketball operations than previously reported, which is a sign that should excite Laker fans everywhere.

    Welcome back Kurt Rambis, the future head coach of the LA Lakers!

  • Sti1lmatic

    Rambis should of been our coach instead of D’Antoni.
    Oh well….

  • Jim213

    Solid acquisition, we’ll probably also get weekly articles from KR on the Daily Breeze.

  • ra

    finally, some D.

  • Kelby Carter

    I like Dantoni he got use into the playoffs with all the crap that went on last season.

  • GroverSage

    Bottom line…..keep an eye on Jim Buss. He’s the make or break.

  • 2014 finals!

    zen phil jackson bought 5 titles to the lakeshow he should be made head of basketball operations president and make basketball decisions along side kupchak, hope jbuss agrees.

    hey kupchak/jbuss still signing sasha, chris d. rob. and farmar this season,?;:,
    you should to make another legit run in the playoffs beyond the 2nd round!

    • Joseph Apohen

      Sasha and Farmar yes. Duhon no. Not needed with the ex Lakers coming back.

  • 2014FINALS

      Lakers can’t sign an amnestied player unless he clears waivers and becomes a free agent.

      • Sti1lmatic

        Forget mike miller, they need to get anthony morrow.

    • Mark Anthony Jones

      I agree with you, also need to sigh Corey Maggette too!

  • 3339

    Funny cause he (like everone else on earth) criticized dantoni for not knowing wtf he was doing. Hopefully this is against what dantoni wants snd he quits. Dantoni should not be coaching the Lakers

  • johnny

    Ya, I will always vote for Rambis. He earned it!

  • ra

    Rambis has a great basketball IQ. During the year (on TWC Lake Show), he made some really intelligent and strategic comments having viewed each and every game, from a coaching perspective.

    So, he’s actually ready to contribute ‘great ideas’, and now, in a realistic forum (namely, as an assistant rather than a sports commentator.).

  • Joseph Apohen

    Is he being groomed to replace MDA? Or perhaps showing the prospective signess that the winning regime will be brought back?

  • hookedonnews

    Kurt Rambis is not the future head coach of the Lakers. Have you seen his record as head coach with the Timberwolves? He’s not qualified to be the head coach of the Lakers simply because he’s a former player or because he was an assistant under Phil Jackson. He’s not being hired as a replacement for D’Antoni. If D’Antoni is fired in the future, they will be looking for a coach with proven credentials, not for someone who’s never been a successful head coach.

    • Josh

      You can’t blame Rambis for the dysfunction and bad luck of the T’Wolves. That team was a complete mess and has been for most of its existence. While Rambis was there, they had one of the worst rosters in the league and more injuries than any other team.

      • hookedonnews

        I hope you cut D’Antoni that kind of slack because of the injuries on the Lakers this season. The point about Rambis is that he doesn’t have the track record or the coaching experience to be the Lakers head coach.
