 The Lakers officially announce that Waltons class is over and that Tyron Lucheng is the hot new coach.


The move came three days after Magic Johnson resigned as president of the Lakers basketball business. Major Admiral Luke Walton coached the Lakers for three seasons, with 98 wins and 148 losses. This season, Walton ended his third season with a disappointing 37-45 record. Wharton signed a five-year contract with the Lakers.

According to league sources, former Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyron Lu is currently a powerful leader in the new Lakers coach position. In addition, Philadelphia 76ers assistant coach Monty Williams is also one of the candidates for the Lakersnew coach. It is understood that Lakers General Manager Palinka will be responsible for the appointment of new commanders.

In a statement, Palinka thanked Walton: We want to thank Walton for his contribution over the past three years. We wish Wharton and his family all the best in the future. Wharton expressed special thanks to team owner Jenny Buss, who is a staunch supporter of Wharton. Im very grateful to Jenny and the Buss family for giving me the opportunity to coach the Lakers, Walton said. The team and the city are special for me and my family.

It is understood that Wednesday, local time, the Lakers and Wharton team conducted a preliminary discussion on the future. The conversation didnt go very far, but it was clear that the Lakers had decided to fire Walton before the Magic stepped down.

Since the beginning of this season, people in the league have been speculating that Waltons position is unstable, not only because the Lakerslineup is flawed, but also because Walton is not the manager appointed by Magic and Palinka. In 2016, Jim Buss and Kupchak hired Wharton.

The relationship between the magician and Wharton has always been mysterious. The Magician publicly declared that he would be patient with the team in the preseason, but he warned Wharton severely just six games from the start of the season. Later, however, the Magician publicly stated that Walton would not be fired this season. Walton led the Lakers to defeat the Warriors in Christmas. However, LeBron suffered injuries in that game, and the Lakers continued to suffer losses, which ultimately could not be reversed. Lakers player Hart praised Walton and his team for their ability. And veteran Rondo also said: Walton is interesting, he is a good coach. I just told him at the meeting that I am happy to learn from him and the challenges he has brought to me this season. The Lakers are looking for a new coach for the fifth time since the 2010-11 season. They have never been in the playoffs since the 2012-13 season.
