The Lakers have intereviewed Byron Scott, Kurt Rambis and Alvin Gentry over the past few weeks and it appears as if it will come down to one of those three men. Initially, it sounded like Scott had the inside track, but that may not be the case.
According to Bleacher Report, Rambis has emerged as the favorite. Also, it was previously reported that the Lakers were waiting to find out LeBron’s free agency decision before choosing a coach. Perhaps that wasn’t true.
Rambis also remains a favorite for the Lakers’ head-coaching position, according to league sources. The Lakers have interviewed at least a half-dozen coaches, but sources say they are focused on three primary candidates: Rambis, Alvin Gentry and Byron Scott.
