Luke Walton leaves two days after Magic Johnson

Luke Walton leaves two days after Magic Johnson

Ohm Youngmisuk has covered the Giants, Jets and the National Football League since 2006.

The Sacramento Kings recently extended the contract of vice president of basketball operations and general manager Vlade Divac, and he wasted no time sweeping clean the front office after the Kings' season ended.

"I think Luke did a hell of a job with what he had, the cards he was dealt", point guard Rajon Rondo said. "We wish Luke and his family the best of luck moving forward".

The Kings fired head coach Dave Joerger and have reportedly zeroed in on Walton, who parted ways with the Lakers this week.

"I said today on Undisputed that it felt like Jeanie Buss would dig in and keep Luke Walton, to spite Magic and LeBron".

While Walton's replacement hasn't been named, multiple reports - including Sports Illustrated and Cleveland's NEWS 5 - have surfaced that Ty Lue is the frontrunner to become the next Lakers coach. Jeannie Buss and Rob Pelinka are going to make sure that the new coach runs the team how they want, which will likely be whatever LeBron James wants.

The Lakers improved their record in each of Walton's three seasons, but never finished higher than third place in the Pacific Division.

Steve Kerr didn't approve of the Lakers' firing of Luke Walton.

Walton's job was the subject of much speculation for several months now, and it will be one of the hottest jobs on the market now.

The 21-year-old UCLA product told reporters Wednesday his ankle was "finally starting to show some good progress" and that he hoped to get back on the court in a couple of weeks to begin offseason training. Luckily for Kerr, the state of the Warriors is the polar opposite of that of the Lakers. The Lakers' season fell apart during the longest injury absence of James' career, and they ended the season with almost every important player in their young core sidelined by injuries.

"He's been great for us", Fox said during the All-Star Break.

Well, I think it's safe to say I called this one correctly.
