The Lakers interviewed Byron Scott for vacant head coaching position on Tuesday.
Should the Lakers hire Scott he would bring with him a strong rooted understanding of the history of success of the organization, something he was a part of for most of his playing career. Scott is known as a player's coach, is reportedly friends with Kobe Bryant, and maybe even more importantly, he has maintained a positive relationship with his former star guard when he was the coach of the Cavs in Kyrie Irving who is scheduled to become a restricted free agent at the end of next season.
