The Lakers appear to be closing in on a deal with Brian Shaw to be their first coach on Luke Walton’s staff.

Brian Shaw was most recently a coach with the Nuggets during the 2013-14 and 2014-15 NBA seasons and an assistant with the Lakers and Pacers. Shaw is highly revered around the league as an assistant, but struggled to connect with the younger players as a head coach. Hopefully under Luke he can bring the experience to the bench that the Lakers will need.
