According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Lakers have been granted permission to speak to Sixers assistant coach Monty Williams for their head coaching vacancy.
Williams is well respected league-wide and more importantly, by LeBron James. The Sixers are obviously still in a playoff series, so conversations would be held to either on the phone or with lakers staff flying to meet Williams. The Lakers are also talking to Tyronn Lue next week, and those two are the top two candidates to replace Luke Walton.
