Insight into Lakers coaching candidate Monty Williams from someone who covered him

Insight into Lakers coaching candidate Monty Williams from someone who covered him

It was reported last week that Williams is viewed as the Lakers' first choice to replace Luke Walton. According to NBA Insider Shams Charania, the Suns are going to go through with bringing in Williams for a second interview. Lue was also honest about wanting the role, Turner adds.

Most interesting part of this is the younger Buss siblings getting looped in.

Pelinka has also interviewed Jason Kidd for the position, according to ESPN.

The Lakers also interviewed Miami Heat assistant Juwan Howard, but he's viewed as a distant third in the race.

The 2019 NBA Playoffs has been much more busier than expected for Philadelphia 76ers Assistant Coach, Monty Williams.

The Los Angeles Lakers haven't played a basketball game for weeks, but they appear to be now embroiled in a serious competition of their own.

Philadelphia could let go Brett Brown go if the 76ers don't make it past Toronto.

As the report says, Nance allegedly wanted to ask Pelinka about his standing with the team to know if he should buy a house in the Los Angeles area.

Lue has reportedly been a player's coach in his head coaching career, which meshes well with LeBron James, and the two seemed to have outstanding rapport in when they were both in Cleveland. The comparison computes like this: Monty Williams may have a greater coaching pedigree in the National Basketball Association, but Lue's intangibles more than make up for the gap in relative skill/experience. In the wake of a report which stated that Nance had accused Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka of lying to him about his status at the time, Nance took to social media to set the record straight.
