Lakers hire Mike D'Antoni
The Los Angeles Lakers will introduce their new head coach on Thursday.
New Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni is considering Nate McMillan and a host of others to join his staff.
According to a report by the Los Angeles Times, there is a "95% chance" that Phil Jackson will return to coach the Los Angeles Lakers for a third time.
The Los Angeles Lakers responded to the firing of Mike Brown by blowing out the Golden State Warriors at home, 101-77 behind 27 points by Kobe Bryant.
After firing Mike Brown Friday afternoon, the Lakers contacted Phil Jackson to gauge his interest in returning, according to a report from the Los Angeles Times.
Gasol says his team believed in Mike Brown's system and missed practice time hurt the whole team.
