The next
 Head Coach
 to Lakers

Adrian Wojnarowski says that the Los Angeles Lakers have hired Darvin Ham, an assistant coach for the Milwaukee Bucks, to be their new head coach.

Per Shams Charania, Ham beat out his more experienced competition and will coach the team for four years.

Ham, who used to play as a small forward, had an NBA career that lasted almost ten years.

He was on the 2004 Pistons team that won the championship, and he was in the 1997 Slam Dunk Contest. However, he is best known now as an assistant coach.

After a few years in the G League, the Lakers gave Ham his first job as an NBA coach.

His rise to fame wasn't in LA. He left the Lakers in 2013 to join Mike Budenholzer's Atlanta staff.

Now Ham will be a head coach for the first time in his career, and the Lakers had a rough year.

The Lakers started the season as the favourite team in the Western Conference, but their 33-49 record was not good enough to get them into the playoffs.

Their trade for Russell Westbrook was a failure, and Frank Vogel was fired mere seconds after the final buzzer of the season.
