The Los Angeles Lakers and head coach Luke Walton have agreed to part ways after the team posted a disappointing 37-45 record and failed to end a playoff drought stretching back to 2013.
LeBron James suffered through one of his most tumultuous seasons in the National Basketball Association during his first stint with the Los Angeles Lakers.
"This franchise and the city will always be special to me and my family", Walton said in a statement.
And according to Turner, out-of-work coach Lue - who worked with LeBron at the Cleveland Cavaliers - is a prime candidate.
Luke Walton is out as coach of the Los Angeles Lakers after three losing seasons.
Leaving the Lakers this summer could be great for Walton, who was basically in a no-win situation in LA.
Charged with trying to blend a roster constructed with eclectic veterans on one-year contracts and a core group of young prospects still learning how to play around James, with a plethora of ball handlers but not enough shooting, Walton had what many felt was the most daunting job in the National Basketball Association.
He was hired by Sixers coach Brett Brown before this season. Ball then reportedly returned to Los Angeles via arrangements made by the team without having surgery. Johnson, though, said that his relationship with Walton was fine after the incident, which he considered overblown.
Through it all, the Lakers were 20-14 after beating the Warriors in Oakland on Christmas Day, the game in which James was initially injured.
Can Walton get the Kings, who have a young core of De'Aaron Fox, Marvin Bagley III and Buddy Hield, to the postseason, where they haven't been in 13 seasons?
"I think that's unfair".
For one thing, James suffered the most serious injury of his career halfway through the season - causing him to play in a career-low 55 games.
"It affected us a lot", guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope said. L.A. was just 17-31 the rest of the way as James missed 17 games and was in and out of the lineup until he was shut down for the season in late March.
