Lue wanted a five-year contract, Lakers only offered him three

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski wrote that the Lakers were hoping to add former Milwaukee Bucks and Brooklyn Nets head coach Jason Kidd to a Lue staff. Wojnarowski tweeted that Kidd "made a strong impression with management in his head coaching interview and had a productive history w/ Bucks developing young talent". And much of the blame should be laid at the organization's feet.

It's been said that Los Angeles Lakers owner Jeanie Buss contemplated trading aging superstar LeBron James around the February deadline, and apparently, some close to James are telling Buss to go through with such a move.

Up in Northern California, the Warriors are squaring off against the Rockets in the in the National Basketball Association playoffs' second round, with aspirations of winning a third consecutive National Basketball Association title. Cleveland advanced to the Finals on three occasions and captured the 2016 championship with Lue on the sidelines.

The Lakers have already reportedly interviewed Kidd for the position, as well as Miami Heat assistant Juwan Howard, and now it looks like they will include a trio of former head coaches in Lionel Hollins, Frank Vogel and Mike Woodson, says The Athletic's Shams Charania.

Vogel, 45, last coached for the Orlando Magic, going 25-57 in 2017-18 before being fired. The Lakers have been without a coach since Walton and the team officially parted ways on April 12 (April 13, PHL time).

The NBA insider has revealed that Lakers co-owner Jeanie Buss is being urged to trade James this offseason.

He was sacked near the beginning of this season, but, as the report says, the Cavaliers still owe him approximately $10 million in contract payout, so accepting less from the Lakers would end up costing him. The Lakers need a new coach and should probably clean house in the front office.

"Nothing is out of bounds right now. We don't know what the hell is going on in Los Angeles".
