Not quite sure going from one dysfunctional franchise to another dysfunctional franchise is a great move for a coach that’s probably getting his last chance. At least, last chance for a few years.

He seems well respected around the league but I don’t remember much from his stint with the Pels. He or Lue seem like the guy. I’d take either over Kidd or Jackson but that goes without saying.
His rotations were befuddling and the in-game decision-making was not sharp. That said, the Pels won 15 fewer games the year after he left, so he might have been doing things right that were hard to recognize. But there was definitely an expectation at the time the Pelicans hired Gentry that he'd be a huge improvement.

Juwan Howard apparently drawing interest from LA and Cleve for their HC spot. He's coming out of a good coaching organization in Miami, and I think he and leBron have a good relationship, but I can't imagine Lakers going to a first time HC again.

But Magic’s abrupt resignation one week ago left Buss with a mess — and a clear task. After an unprecedented six straight seasons of losing, as James nears his 35th birthday in December, there is a justified clamor to break from the outdated Lakers tradition of restricting their outreach to job candidates with well-established Lakers ties.Perhaps that looms somewhere in yet-to-be-announced future plans, but the signals so far point to Buss allowing Magic’s top aide, Rob Pelinka, to assume greater responsibility and run the team’s basketball operations.

Which would be the worst mistake of her tenure.

Pelinka is already running the Lakers’ search for a new coach. The opening was created when Luke Walton willingly surrendered the final two years of his contract after months of withering scrutiny and pressure, largely instigated by Johnson’s well-chronicled criticism in November, once presented with a better opportunity and more tangible support from the woebegone Sacramento Kings.

In numerous rival organizations, there is both shock and relief that the Lakers haven’t responded to events of the past week by chasing the likes of Golden State’s Bob Myers, San Antonio’s R.C. Buford and Oklahoma City’s Sam Presti before they go looking for a new coach.
