Following their recent NBA playoff elimination, the Los Angeles Lakers are once again in the spotlight for their coaching decisions.

After parting ways with their previous coach, the Lakers, known for their dramatic responses to playoff exits, are now reportedly considering a mix of experienced and novel candidates for the position.

ESPN’s Dave McMenamin discussed on SportsCenter the possibility of the Lakers shifting back towards a seasoned coach.

Among the discussed candidates, Jason Kidd, who served as an assistant under former coach Frank Vogel during the Lakers’ last championship run, was highlighted.

Currently coaching a successful Dallas Mavericks team featuring stars like Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving, Kidd’s potential availability remains uncertain due to his strong current trajectory and outlook in Dallas.

In contrast to Kidd’s deep coaching experience, JJ Redick has also surfaced as a notable contender. Redick, despite his inexperience in coaching roles, is gaining traction among the list of prospective hires, which includes names like Tyronn Lue, who has denied any link to the vacancy.
