Lakers receive permission from Golden State to interview Luke Walton

first_imgWalton quickly became an attractive option for a few reasons. He has strong ties with the Lakers as a former reserve (2004-12). Walton also guided the defending NBA champion Warriors to a 39-4 record this season as interim coach while head coach Steve Kerr recovered from offseason back surgery. During the 2011 NBA lockout, Walton also served as an assistant coach at the University of Memphis. Once his 10-year NBA career ended after the 2012-13 season with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Walton became a player development coach for the Lakers’ Development League affiliate, the D-Fenders. That soon parlayed into a position as an assistant coach with the Warriors once Kerr became the head coach in 2014-15. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The Lakers are completing the beginning steps of their coaching search by pursuing someone both familiar by name and intriguing by potential.The Golden State Warriors have granted the Lakers permission to interview assistant Luke Walton on Wednesday once their first-round series ends against the Houston Rockets. Later that evening, the Warriors accomplished just that. That makes Walton’s schedule relatively more flexible before Golden State faces the winner of the Clippers-Portland first-round series. With Portland leading that series 3-2, the Warriors would face the Trail Blazers on Sunday if they close out their series in Game 6 on Friday. If the Clippers force a Game 7 on Sunday, the Warriors would face the winner on May 3. Golden State generally allows its assistants to interview for head-coaching positions even before the NBA playoffs end so long as it does not interfere with their current job. For example, the New Orleans Pelicans were granted permission to interview former Warriors assistant Alvin Gentry in mid May last year before the Warriors’ eventual title run. last_img read more
