Report: Jason Kidd ‘Promoting Himself’ To Be Head Coach If Luke Walton Fired

Los Angeles Lakers head coach Luke Walton has already dealt with his fair share of media headlines throughout the 2018-2019 NBA season.

As the Lakers continue to struggle with injuries, Walton seems to be on thin ice with president of basketball operations Magic Johnson and general manager Rob Pelinka.

President Jeanie Buss has been adamant the team continues to support Walton, but it is fair to wonder if his time as head coach is coming to an end. He was ultimately not hired by Johnson and Pelinka and the two reportedly may be looking to bring in their own head coach.
