Who's going to replace him?

"ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that former Cleveland Cavaliers coach Ty Lue is a strong frontrunner to replace Walton and that Philadelphia 76ers assistant Monty Williams joins Lue as the central candidates in the Lakers search, according to league sources."

    He was doomed from day 1. Maybe someone from Space Jam 2 could coach the LaBron’s

    I've seen his name linked to the Kings head coaching vacancy,that would be a good spot for him to land with an up and coming team.

    Jason Kidd is also in the running for the job.

    Leave the spot empty. James can coach from the floor.

    Smart move by Vlade. Luke is the new Kings HC.

    We liked Coach Joerger here in SacTown and I was a bit surprised he was fired. He seemed to be doing a good job. Curious why Luke is a better choice. I guess time will tell....

    I couldn't tell you why Joerger was fired especially since he coached the Kings to 12 more wins than the previous season but he did get canned for whatever reason. And I never said that Walton will be a better choice. I just think he'll eventually be a good HC in the right situation,obviously the Lakers wasn't it. Maybe its the Kings.

    Looking at the guy, I never figured the big flopper would become a GM.

    His English was just so-so when he first started playing.

    The American dream, I guess.

    Never saw the value of Luke as a head coach. Maybe someone owes Bill a favor.

    he's living off the Warrior win streak when Kerr was out.

    I hear ya. I was more stating our local frustration. I am hopeful that Luke can do something good here.

    He took over a horrible Lakers team that had just won 17 games the previous season then in his first two seasons his teams won 26 games then 35 and that was with zero star caliber players. Had Lebron not missed games to injury during this past season they were probably looking at least a 45-50 win team.
    Its still the NBA where you need Stars to compete for the playoffs and Superstars to contend for a title but I think the Kings have a solid young core of Fox,Hield & Bagley Jr to build around.

    Magic wanted to draft Fox with the second pick. Jeanie Buss wanted Lonzo.

    As a UCLA fan I was really hoping Lonzo would have a good career... but as a King's fan I am glad we got De'aaron because it looks like he will be an all-star. I met De'aaron a few months ago, at a charity event, and he was extremely friendly with all the fans. A few of the players there were sort of jerks but De'Aaron and Justin Jackson (now former King) were both very friendly with all the fans.

    I think Walton did a good job. He comes from solid basketball stock, and coaching seems like s good fit. Hope he does well in the future. I am a big fan of his Dad.

    I was thinking the Lakers caught wind of the Walton alegations. I think Magic got sick of it all and left. he doesnt need the money and its not worth the headache. with lebaby being the headache
