He won two previous titles as a deep reserve with the Lakers, in 2000 and 2001. The Lakers announced the news in a statement, freeing up the team to go find a new coach and Walton to find a new team.

Los Angeles was in fourth place in the Western Conference at 20-14 after beating Golden State last Christmas, but James and Rondo were injured during the game. "We wish Luke and his family the best of luck moving forward".

Walton spent three seasons as coach of the Lakers, a team that drafted him in 2003. Pelinka called Walton leaving a mutual decision.

Walton went 98-148 in three seasons with the Lakers, including a 37-45 mark this season.

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

Many considered him the unofficial Coach of the Year for his guidance of the then-champion Warriors at the start of the 2015-16 season in place of an ailing Steve Kerr.

Rams lucked out by never expressing serious interest in Antonio Brown
Brown's unprompted tweet referred to Smith-Schuster's critical fumble in Week 16 against the New Orleans Saints last season. He showed support for his fellow wide receiver from the Pro Bowl but made clear he wouldn't be involved.

One of the final bits of drama during Magic Johnson's tenure as president of the Los Angeles Lakers was stepping in and stopping unauthorized surgery on Lonzo Ball's ankle that was set up by Ball's former business partner Alan Foster, The Athletic reports. "They did everything right, I'll say that".

As for how Walton fits with the Kings - it could be a seamless fit.

Rondo, who is on the sixth team of his career, praised Walton for his ability to relate to players.

The other frontrunner for the job is former Cleveland Cavaliers head coach, Ty Lue.

He has reached an agreement to become the head coach of the Sacramento Kings, according to people familiar with the situation but not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.
