Lakers say there's no rush in coaching search

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Lakers say they're in no rush to hire their next head coach.

That means the next several weeks are likely to be filled with anonymous speculation, widespread rumors and outright lies about the innumerable candidates to succeed Mike D'Antoni after the Lakers' worst season in more than 50 years.

The Lakers still have one of the NBA's most glamorous coaching jobs despite their down season, and the new coach will be one part of a thorough franchise rebuild over the next several years.

Los Angeles has just three players under contract for next season, along with a draft pick guaranteed to be in the top nine. Kobe Bryant is under contract for two more years, which means the new coach must work the superstar into his plans.
