As of right now, the consensus appears to be that Byron Scott is the favorite to be Mike D’Antoni’s successor. On Tuesday, Scott may have taken another step toward locking up his next coaching gig by meeting with the Lakers for a second time, according to ESPN’s Chris Broussard:

Scott was among the first to interview for the Lakers head coaching vacancy and may ultimately be the team’s choice to lead the team on the sidelines next season.

USA Today’s Sam Amick confirmed Broussard’s report of Scott meeting with the Lakers for a second time shortly after the news surfaced:

With Scott meeting with the team once again, the team may be coming closer to a decision on the next head coach. GM Mitch Kupchak let it be known that the team wanted to have a new coach in place by the 2014 NBA draft on June 26, but it isn’t considered a deadline.
