The Los Angeles Lakers met with Byron Scott for a second time Tuesday to discuss the team’s head-coaching vacancy, ESPN reports.
Scott, who met with vice president of player personnel Jim Buss and general manager Mitch Kupchak, is the only candidate to be interviewed twice by the Lakers, according to the report.
Scott, who spent the first 10 years of his playing career with the Lakers, has previously coached the New Jersey Nets, then-New Orleans Hornets and Cleveland Cavaliers. He guided the Nets to back-to-back Finals appearances in 2002 and 2003, losing both times. The Lakers reportedly are targeting a candidate with previous coaching experience.
