Lakers Rumors: Kentucky’s John Calipari ‘No Shot’ To Become Lakers Coach
[new_royalslider id=”279″]

The coaching search continues for the Los Angeles Lakers with plenty of options for the storied franchise heading into the off-season. Although a number of big-name coaches have emerged as potential replacements for Mike D’Antoni, the Lakers brass will take their time before making a decision on who to bring in next season.

According to Mitch Lawrence of the New York Daily News, one name can be crossed off the list with the Lakers showing no interest:

John Calipari has no shot to get the job, just as he didn’t when Rex Chapman tweeted that Calipari was on his way to Laker-land with a “done deal” as Kentucky hit the court for the NCAA championship game against UConn. Calipari knows the Lakers have zero interest in him and that’s why he tweeted on Friday that he is not leaving the Wildcats.

The Calipari-to-the-Lakers rumors have been floating around ever since Kevin Ollie’s University of Connecticut beat the University of Kentucky in the National Championship game on April 7.

Despite refuted reports, Calipari has frequently been linked to the Lakers, but it appears the rumors will come to an end if the team truly has zero interest as Lawrence suggests.

Among the candidates mentioned over the last week or so, only a few seem to be getting considerable interest. Byron Scott, Derek Fisher and Steve Kerr might be at the top of the list with Tom Thibodeau possibly becoming the frontrunner if the Chicago Bulls give the Lakers permission to talk to him.
