Lakers Coaching Staff To Include Quin Snyder And Maybe Chuck Person

The Los Angeles Lakers coaching staff seems to be nearing completion as Mike Brown gets settled into his new position.

Brown will bring in one of the smartest basketball minds available in Quin Snyder as well former University of Utah coach Jim Boylen, according to ESPN's Ric Bucher. Chuck Person is also said to have an offer on the table to remain in the same role he held under former Lakers coach Phil Jackson.

Snyder has previously served as an NBA assistant coach with the Los Angeles Clippers from 1992-1993 as well as this past season with the Philadelphia 76ers, but he's more known for his time as a college coach at Mizzou. Snyder also spent a few solid seasons as the head coach of the D-League's Austin Toros.

Boylen spent the last four seasons at Utah, but actually has quite a few years of experience as an NBA assistant with the Houston Rockets, Milwaukee Bucks and Golden State Warriors. He began his coaching career as an assistant at Michigan State.

According to Bucher, Brown's staff on the bench would include former Pistons coach John Kuester, Boylen and Person along with former Moscow CSKA coach Ettore Messina and Snyder behind the bench in advisory roles.
