Lakers select former player to become new head coach

Former Bucks assistant, and eight-year veteran of the NBA, Darvin Ham will be the new head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers. Since the termination of Frank Vogel, many speculated on what would happen in Los Angeles. Opinions ranged from Mark Jackson to Terry Stotts.

There were three finalists remaining and the Lakers conducted finishing interviews to determine their new head coach; needless to say the finalists were Darvin Ham and Terry Stotts. It was reported that the franchise was impressed with his toughness and stature; plus, his ability to coach players and hold a championship-pedigree. When he won a championship as a player, with the Pistons back in 2004, and won a championship as a coach in 2021 with the Bucks.

After three interesting seasons with Vogel, the Lakers decided to move on and give someone a new opportunity. This opportunity will be lasting for four years, in theory, as the Lakers will be looking to make the postseason under Ham’s guidance. Maybe he will deliver a championship for the organization in year one like Vogel did? However, only time will tell.
