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.

Jose Reyes pleaded not guilty to his domestic abuse charge.
Reyes was not present but his attorney entered the plea on his behalf. The next court date is scheduled for Jan. 14, when a pretrial hearing is scheduled. Reyes was arrested after an incident with his wife left her to be treated at the hospital for leg injuries and scratches on her neck. This is not going to be a good thing for Reyes or the Rockies or MLB for that matter. The league is likely going to let it play out in court before deciding if disciplinary actions should be taken.
