Lakers, Walton mutually agree to part ways

Lakers, Walton mutually agree to part ways

According to Sam Amick of The Athletic, the Kings reached a deal with the former Lakers head coach to take over the team through the 2022-2023 season.

Given Walton's future has been precarious for some months, with Lakers owner Jeanie Buss' confidence in the head coach having waned of late, the 16-time National Basketball Association champions have been linked with a host of names.

Although some wondered if Magic Johnson's abrupt departure from the Lakers might save Walton and his staff, it's clear it did nothing more than maybe buy them an extra day or two.

"That was quick", Kerr said.

Rob Pelinka will run the search for their next head coach.

In Williams' Pelicans tenure, he had a 173-221 record and made the playoffs twice, in his first and last seasons there. "They're losing a guy who knows the game as well as anybody I've ever met".

First up, you can see the logo for The Mandalorian on both the main page for Disney + and the dedicated Star Wars page. The service's entire lineup will cover five categories: Disney , Pixar, Marvel , Star Wars and National Geographic.

Suspensions, injuries, never-ending drama, inexcusable losses to bottom-feeding teams and even a buffet of on-the-court gaffes - enough to provide the internet with ammunition to come up with a "One Shining Moment" parody - smothered the Lakers' season and doomed Walton. "He was dependent on circumstances just like all of us".

Well, I think it's safe to say I called this one correctly. He also spent seven years with the Lakers until he was traded to the Charlotte Hornets in 1996 as part of the deal that allowed the Lakers to acquire the draft rights to Kobe Bryant.

Of concern, however, is Walton's ability to develop players.

Since Rick Adelman left Sacramento in 2006 after eight seasons, the Kings have had nine head coaches.

Sports talk personality Skip Bayless said earlier he hoped Lakers owner Jeanie Buss would keep Walton to spite its star player and Magic Johnson.
