After Byron Scott departed from the L.A. Lakers, the 16 times NBA champions are searching for their new coach. Who is the favorite to take the position?
According to U.S.A Today, Ettore Messina seems to be a front-runner for the job. The Italian coach is currently a lead assistant in the San Antonio Spurs, and the Lakers have already received permission from the Texan team to interview him.
Messina is quite familiar with the L.A .Lakers since he spent the 2011-2012 season in the team, as an consultant to coach Mike Brown.
