NBA Rumors: Los Angeles Lakers interested in Mark Jackson


Now that the Golden State Warriors have fired head coach Mark Jackson, they will reportedly turn their attention to the likes of the top New York Knicks’ candidate, Steve Kerr, former Miami Heat and Orlando Magic head coach Stan Van Gundy and former Memphis Grizzlies’ head coach Lionel Hollins, among others.

This firing also could help the Los Angeles Lakers speed up their coaching search.

According to Dave McMenamin of ESPN Los Angeles, the Lakers are very interested in Jackson now that he is available.


Jackson posted a regular season record of 121-109 and a postseason record of 9-10 in three seasons with the Warriors.

    Doubtful… why do b-tier writers think that quoting another unsubstantiated article is good news.
    Why would the Lakers want Mark Jackson. All he’s proven is that he can get a team to the first round of the playoffs.
    When is “the list” going to stop growing? I hear the Scottie Pippen needs a job… and President Obama has played some basketball in his past….
    Speculative articles mean nothing without substantiation.
