Lakers Fire Coach Byron Scott After Horrible Season
After just two seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers, Coach Byron Scott has been fired, the team announced Sunday night.
Prior to coaching, Scott played for the franchise for 11 seasons and was part of three championship teams. He was hired in 2014 to replace then head coach Mike D’Antoni. Scott was also the coach of the Cavaliers prior to being fired in 2013.
“We would like to thank Byron for his hard work, dedication and loyalty over the last two years, but have decided it is in the best interest of the organization to make a change at this time,” Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak said in a statement released by the team.
