Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka reportedly had to intervene when Lonzo Ball scheduled unauthorized ankle surgery. More

Now, the Lakers and James will look for another coach, and two early candidates have emerged - former Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue and Sixers assistant coach Monty Williams.

Now, for the fifth time since Phil Jackson last sat on the Lakers' bench in 2010-11, the Lakers will be looking for a new head coach to attempt to revive the proud franchise and take it to the postseason for the first time since the 2012-13 season.
