The Lakers released a statement on Friday stating that the team and coach Luke Walton have mutually agreed to part ways.
GM Rob Pelinka thanked Walton for his service while Walton thanked Jeanie Buss and the Buss family for the opportunity. Ty Lue, LeBron James’ last coach in Cleveland, is a frontrunner to replace Walton according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, while Walton is rumored to be atop the list to replace Dave Joerger in Sacramento. The summer’s just getting started so there will be tons more movement before next season kicks off.
