Lakers Rumors: Kevin Love ‘Would Have Reservations’ If Rambis Stays
[new_royalslider id=”196″]

In the weeks following the announcement of Mike Woodson’s firing as head coach of the New York Knicks, it was assumed by many Steve Kerr was going to take his place. Wednesday saw Kerr go a different direction as he decided to coach the Golden State Warriors instead.

As a result, the Knicks were left to begin their search anew with names like Derek Fisher and Kurt Rambis possibility in the mix. If Knicks team president Phil Jackson were to hire Rambis, the Lakers could potentially benefit in their alleged pursuit of Kevin Love, according to Frank Isola of the NY Daily News:

Rambis also butted head with Kevin Love, who has become one of the NBA’s top power forwards. It has been speculated that Love would have reservations about possibly signing with the Lakers as a free agent if Rambis remains on the coaching staff.

As it stands, Rambis remains a Laker assistant coach as the team continues its search to replace Mike D’Antoni. Rambis’ name has been linked to the opening, but in his earlier stints as head coach of the Lakers and Timberwolves, he failed to produce any winning seasons and only produced a record of 56-145.

The Lakers will be looking to assemble a championship contending team as fast as they can. In this year’s off-season, the team could use their lottery pick and ample cap space to build some of the pieces. When Steve Nash’s contract comes off the books next year, the Lakers could be in the market to add an additional piece such as Kevin Love provided they don’t commit too much money to other players this summer.
