With Derek Fisher’s season now finished with the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Lakers can now speak to him about the possibility of becoming the team’s next head coach. But according to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne, a couple of new names have emerged as potential candidates:

Skiles and Brown are new names to add to the list, but both fit the criteria of being experienced, defensive-minded coaches. They have both also taken young teams and turned them around.

Fisher still has to make a decision on if he wants to retire or continue his playing career. Even if he has played his last game, he will have a difficult decision to make as the New York Knicks are said to be targeting him as their next head coach.

The Lakers are really taking their time and seem to be willing to interview every single candidate who could be a possibility. As Shelburne reports, this search could still be weeks away from ending:

When the Lakers do make their final decision, there will be no doubt that the team will have exhausted every option before making their choice.
