Yesterday, the Lakers received the seventh pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. Knowing what pick they will receive, the team has officially begun their head coaching search.
Over the past two days, Mike Dunleavy and Byron Scott had interviews with general manager Mitch Kupchak about the job opening to coach the Lakers.
Today, Kupchak spoke about the lottery and talked about their off-season plans which included the coaching search and Kobe Bryant.
Kupchak does not anticipate filling in the vacant head coaching position in the next two to three weeks from now. He would also add that it’s a top priority for the upcoming coach to get the “most productivity” out of their franchise player.
