Walton was sacked following a disastrous season for the Lakers.

The Los Angeles Lakers have reportedly honed in on Tyronn Lue and Monty Williams to replace Luke Walton as head coach next season. Walton and the Lakers mutually agreed to part ways Friday after the team finished with a 37-45 record. They're sitting at home on the first day of the 2019 NBA Playoffs, and no longer have a president or head coach after Magic Johnson abruptly stepped down in freaky fashion and the team subsequently fired Luke Walton.

"We would like to thank Luke for his dedicated service over the last three years", said Pelinka. "We wish Luke and his family the best of luck moving forward".

European Union leaders have agreed to grant British Prime Minister Theresa May a Brexit delay until the end of October. His performance in parliament was a caricature of even his normal levels of obsequious fawning before the ruling class.

Given Walton's future has been precarious for some months, with Lakers owner Jeanie Buss' confidence in the head coach having waned of late, the 16-time National Basketball Association champions have been linked with a host of names.

Walton came to L.A. after two seasons as an assistant to Steve Kerr with the Golden State Warriors, leading the team to a 39-4 record as interim head coach while Kerr recovered from back surgery, numbers that are not included in Walton's official coaching record. Johnson and many fans had problems with everything from Walton's playing time decisions and curious rotations to his reported reluctance to add new assistants with fresh perspectives to his bench. A multitude of fans and analysts have pointed to a potential Luke Walton-Sacramento Kings pairing as "perfect", and when you look at Walton's strengths, it certainly seems that way.

Walton would lose Lonzo Ball (ankle) and Brandon Ingram (blood clot in shoulder) to season-ending injuries as the Lakers had James, Ingram and Ball together for a total of only 23 games, going 15-8 during that span. The current Lakers were the franchise's most successful team since their playoff drought began in 2013, but it wasn't enough to save Walton's job. "I want my coach on the same page".
