Lakers Rumors: GM Mitch Kupchak denies Calipari to Lakers "done deal"

With Lakers rumors absolutely buzzing over the possibility of Kentucky Wildcats head coach John Calipari leading the Lakers into the 2014-15 NBA season and beyond, general manager Mitch Kupchak is looking to put those rumors to rest.

As reported on, Chris Dufresne of the Los Angeles Times just tweeted out that Kupchak is completely denying any connection between the Lakers franchise and John Calipari at this time:

This leaves the Los Angeles Lakers and their fans in a state of limbo, with all indications pointing to current Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni being out at season's end.

However, it is possible that the Los Angeles Lakers could retain D'Antoni on a short leash, especially if they feel he can guide the Los Angeles Lakers back to the NBA Playoffs in 2014-15 with a fully healthy Kobe Bryant by his side.
