After Monty Williams was hired by the Phoenix Suns on Friday, it looks like we might be seeing the next Lakers head coach announced soon.
This weekend, it was reported that LeBron James, Maverick Carter, and Tyronn Lue all went out to Las Vegas to celebrate Lue's birthday and watch the Canelo vs. Jacobs fight on Saturday night. In a video that is making rounds on the internet, it shows Tyronn Lue standing behind a Lakers themed cake that reads "Happy Birthday Coach" on the front of it.
Although no official offer has been made, it looks like Tyronn Lue is going to be the guy for the Lakers. Lue’s experience with LeBron James, and schemes that turn the Cavs into an offensive powerhouse by spacing the floor with shooters around James driving and passing ability is a huge selling point for him. He already has experience coaching LeBron James and knows how he works. There’s no word as to when the Lakers would like to announce their next head coach according to the LA Times, but it looks like they’re inching closer to a decision.
