NBA News: Lakers Interview Kurt Kambis
By Lou Ramon Aguila | May 31, 2014 10:18 PM EST
The Los Angeles Lakers interviewed former Minnesota Timberwolves head coach Kurt Rambis for the vacant coaching gig, a source close to situation reported on Thursday.
Rambis, who went 32-132 in two seasons with the Wolves, could have another chance to coach an NBA team, this time it could be his former team - the Lakers.
Being part of the Showtime Lakers in the 80s and an assistant to Phil Jackson, Rambis is believed to have a solid chance in stealing the job from top contenders such as Byron Scott, Mike Dunleavy, Lionel Hollins and Alvin Gentry.
Moreover, Rambis' wife is close to Lakers' co-owner Jeanie Buss, giving him some edge over other candidates for the post.
"Rambis has ties to Phil Jackson, having served as a Lakers assistant while the current Knicks team president manned L.A.'s bench, as well as the Showtime era Lakers. He played on four of L.A.'s five championship teams in the 1980s," via Hoops Rumors.
"Rambis served as head coach for the final 37 games of the 1999 season for the Lakers before returning to his role as an assistant, and he also had a disastrous two-year stint as Wolves head coach, going 32-132."
