The Los Angeles Lakers have reportedly honed in on Tyronn Lue and Monty Williams to replace Luke Walton as head coach next season.

Steve Kerr feels for Luke Walton and Kerr shares what Los Angeles is losing by parting ways with Walton.

After a disappointing season saw the organisation miss out on the playoffs for a sixth straight season despite the addition of LeBron James in the summer, Walton paid the price.

Sports talk personality Skip Bayless said earlier he hoped Lakers owner Jeanie Buss would keep Walton to spite its star player and Magic Johnson.

"They are losing one of the best human beings in the NBA", Kerr told reporters after practice Friday according to Mark Medina of the San Jose Mercury News. Teams with LeBron on it are better suited to have shooting around The King since he's an exceptional passer and collapses the paint on his drives to the basket. Johnson and Pelinka gave him an oddly constructed roster of idiosyncratic National Basketball Association veterans on one-year deals playing alongside James and several talented youngsters including Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, Kyle Kuzma and Josh Hart. Unfortunately for Walton, he took the hit for it.

"I'm disappointed for Luke", Kerr said via Anthony Slater.

The NBA Playoffs begin on Saturday and the Golden State Warriors are favorites to win it all again. Walton just couldn't coax enough wins out of the Lakers, who ruined their second-half playoff hopes with confounding losses to bottom-dwellers NY and Phoenix.

Many executives, coaches and agents had speculated about Walton's job security since the start of the season not only because the Lakers had the makings of a flawed roster but also because Walton wasn't hired by Johnson and Pelinka.

As a coach, however, it never seemed to be stable with Walton at the helm.

Multiple reports suggest that Walton, 39, is on the verge of becoming the next head coach of the Sacramento Kings.
