Lakers News: Team Makes Changes to Coaching Staff For Next Season

The off-season is barely a week old and the team is already making some changes. In several moves announced on Monday afternoon, the team has made several changes to their coaching staff. After news broke that Eddie Jordan took the head coaching gig at Rutgers, the turnover for the team coaching staff continues with the latest developments.

According to Mike Bresnahan of the L.A. Times, the Lakers have begun their summer of transition.

What about some of the other assistants? Bresnahan also reported that several of them will be back next season.

 

Kevin Ding of the O.C. Register stated on his Twitter account that one of the reasons for the change is Mike D’Antoni’s desire for a smaller coaching staff after he inherited Mike Brown’s staff when he was hired.

These aren’t exactly groundbreaking moves, but it does show that the team is anxious to get the off-season started, and finalizing the coaching staff is a logical first step.
