Los Angeles Lakers failed to win the NBA Draft Lottery on Tuesday night but that doesn't mean that there plans for next season are derailed. While they would have loved to pick up the first overall pick, they have the seventh pick and now they have their eyes firmly fixed on there next piece of business.
That piece of business will be to find their next head coach. The sooner they get a coach in place for next season the sooner they will be able to finalize who their draft preferences.
Lots of names have been thrown into the hat for the Lakers job by the media, but today we seem to have found a real front runner for the job.
According to Yahoo Sports, Mike Dunleavy has a strong shout for the job right now, seen as though he was interviewed for the job at the Lakers facility Wednesday.
"Mike Dunleavy had an interview with GM Mitch Kupchak for Lakers coaching job on Wednesday morning, league sources tell Yahoo Sports," Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted.
