LAKERS INTERVIEW FORMER WIZARDS COACH FOR ASSISTANT POSITION
BY BRANDON MARCUS
As the tweet above says, the Lakers have already hired former Knicks coach David Fizdale following the departure of assistant coach Jason Kidd. Kidd left LA when he received the head coach gig with the Dallas Mavericks and it sounds like the Lakers are really stacking their coaching roster in his absence. Technically, there is no limit to the number of assistant coaches a team can have, although only three of them can sit on the bench with the head coach.
If Brooks joins Fizdale under Vogel, that will be two former head coaches helping to lead the purple and gold next season.
Brooks was relieved of duty after the Washington Wizards got eliminated in the first round of the playoffs. Previously to that, he coached the Thunder to the playoffs five times.
