Who Will Be The Next Lakers Head Coach? Latest Odds & Favorites



The Los Angeles Lakers are still in search of their new head coach and the list of candidates continues to change.

Early favorites like Quin Snyder and David Fizdale have fallen in the latest odds, while Terry Stotts has emerged as the new front-runner along with veteran coaches Doc Rivers and Mark Jackson.

If LeBron were to take over as player-coach at 100-1 odds, he would be the first to have that role since Dave Cowens led the Celtics during the 1978-79 campaign.

Other longshots include legendary Duke Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski and, of course, Phil Jackson, though both men would need to end their retirements to return to the bench.

Who else could be in the mix?
