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.

Former Golden State Warriors' assistant and former LA Lakers' head coach Luke Walton was recently fired. Pelinka called Walton leaving a mutual decision.

The search for Walton's replacement is already underway, with ESPN reporting former Cavaliers coach and LeBron confidant Ty Lue is a "strong frontfunner."

Also Thursday, the Kings extended Divac's contract through the 2022-23 season - and Walton's deal is expected to run those same four years.

On Friday, Warriors coach Steve Kerr advised Luke Walton to take a vacation and figure out what he wanted to do next.

Walton did not remain unemployed long. Kerr goes into how numerous circumstances revolving around Walton's situation may have been brought on by factors that he did not have control over, such as the players that stabilize the team's culture and the injuries throughout the season. News of a signing probably won't break until the 76ers are out of the playoffs. Golden State began with a record 24-0 start and Walton was 39-4 overall before Kerr returned to the bench following complications from a pair of back surgeries. Johnson, though, said that his relationship with Walton was fine after the incident, which he considered overblown.

The Lakers medical staff was under scrutiny as a litany of injuries to key players plagued the team this season.

The team was 26-56 in Walton's first season in 2016-17 before improving to 35-47 in 2017-18.

Sam Amick of The Athletic was the first to report the deal, and NBC Sports California confirmed the details with a league source. Neither the Kings nor Walton waited long following changes that came just after the end of the regular season.


The Lakers finished 10th in the Western Conference, failing to reach the play-offs for the sixth straight year.

"They're losing one of the best human beings in the NBA", Kerr said. They're losing somebody who players believe in, players want to play for. "Great opportunity, though. Really nice young team". Divac did just that, finding his new coach two days after dismissing Joerger.
