With the search for Luke Walton's successor underway after he mutually agreed with the organization to leave his role as head coach, there are some Lakers rumors that the team has been granted permission to talk to a possible replacement.

Despite adding LeBron James to the roster, the Lakers struggled in the 2018-19 season and did not make the playoffs in Walton's third year coaching the men in yellow and purple.

"After evaluating the season, I determined that we need to move in a different direction in order to take us to the next level", Divac said in a statement.

When it comes to Mosley, he has former experience with the Cavaliers, as he spent four years there as an assistant before leaving in 2014 to join the Denver Nuggets for three years.

Today, the Kings confirmed that Luke Walton will be their head coach moving forward.

The Season 8 premiere of " Game of Thrones " drew a record 17.4 million USA television viewers, cable channel HBO said on Monday. In fact, it looks as if he's standing "trial" of sorts, fielding questions from Sansa, Dany, and Jon Snow .

In three seasons with the Lakers, Walton went 98-148 and the team's record continued to improve each year, but his late-game management was questioned at times towards the end of his tenure and there was speculation throughout much of the campaign that he would be let go.

Some met the news with skepticism.

Personally, I would love to see Williams be the Lakers coach, and if Pelinka can finally do the right thing and show he is capable of doing his job, the chances of a deal being done are very very likely.

The Kings will hold a press conference Monday at 1 p.m. FOX40 will stream the conference live on Facebook.
