Cavs, Lakers want to talk to Howard

Brett Brown and Monty Williams

The Lakers and coach Luke Walton parted ways Friday after a 37-45 season. Eventually, the Lakers and Walton finally made a decision to part ways and the Lakers have been looking for a head coach ever since.

Sixers assistant coach Monty Williams is becoming a hot name for head coaching openings.

Rumors that Walton would take the job swirled just as former head coach Dave Joerger was sacked on Thursday - after the team's best season in 13 years.

Something that's also a possibility is that Lakers GM Rob Pelinka could fly out to meet with Williams to get a potential deal done due to his current situation of being in a playoff series.

The Cavaliers have some candidates for their coaching vacancy and are getting set to conduct some interviews, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com reports.

Should Willams take up the offer of coaching the Lakers, he would bring an excellent resumé with him.

Williams has a career 173-221 record as a head coach in New Orleans. As Williams is now under contract with Philadelphia, an interview would have to go through the team's front office.

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.

Kings fans FOX40 spoke with over the weekend had mixed feelings about Walton as head coach.

The Cleveland Cavaliers will begin interviewing assistant coaches for their vacant head coach position this week. The pair lifted the Larry O'Brien trophy in 2016 during James' incredible stretch of eight consecutive NBA Finals appearances.
