Williams has also been linked with the vacant position at the Sacramento Kings, who have opened talks with Walton regarding a meeting to potentially make him their new head coach.

Vlade Divac got his man; Luke Walton is the new Head Coach of the Sacramento Kings.

Although Walton coached the entire 2018-19 season, it was evident early on he was not going to be a part of the team's long-term plans.

Ball then reportedly returned to Los Angeles via arrangements made by the team without having surgery.

"I'm disappointed for Luke".

Walton spent three seasons as head coach of the Lakers, amassing a record of 98-148. "They're losing somebody who players believe in, players want to play for".

Attorney Michael Avenatti faces 36-count federal indictment in California
Avenatti had been scheduled to face questioning about some of almost $15 million he owes attorney Jason Frank for legal work. To prevent discovery of his scheme, he told clients the settlement proceeds hadn't yet been paid, among other tactics.


The team was 26-56 in Walton's first season in 2016-17 before improving to 35-47 in 2017-18. But again, he was dependent on circumstances, just like all of us are. Los Angeles missed the playoffs in all three campaigns.

"I think Luke did a hell of a job with what he had, the cards he was dealt", point guard Rajon Rondo said. And while it may seem like the job is already down to two people, there could always be the sleeper pick, late-fire option that the Lakers consider.

Not many Lakers observers questioned Walton's man-management abilities, but his tactical acumen was widely criticized.

He was in charge as LeBron and the Cavs took two more trips to the NBA Finals, though they were beaten by the Golden State Warriors both times.

He certainly has coached some of the game's biggest stars and egos.

Per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Tyronn Lue's name is at the head of the list to fill the Lakers' coaching vacancy.
