    Ham separated himself in the process in recent days, interviewing with Lakers officials on Thursday and inspiring an offer on Friday afternoon, sources said. The Lakers were sold on Ham's stature and toughness, his history of coaching star players, championship pedigree as an assistant and player, sources said. Ham's history with the Lakers franchise for two years -- 2011-13 -- played a part in his hiring, too.

    Is it just me or does anyone else get the sense that the FO has been going opposite from what LBJ/Klutch want since the TD? Alot of passive aggressiveness going on out there.

    Welcome back to LA... Coach

    Lebron wanted this guy too. I am might be wrong. Young coach but clearly is experienced as a assistant coach. The next step is to put together his staff and the players.

    He has a very good recommendation.
    Giannis Antetokounmpo on Darvin Ham: He's the right fit for Lakers


    Adrian Wojnarowski: On the Lakers hiring of Bucks assistant Darvin Ham, Giannis Antetokounmpo tells ESPN: “I’m so happy for him. He’s the right fit for them. He keeps it real with you. No BS at all. It’s about damn time. He deserves it more than anyone.” – via Twitter wojespn
    Top Rumors, Darvin Ham, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Los Angeles Lakers, Milwaukee Bucks

    But those who know him, and know of his reputation, believe he’s well-equipped for the job and fits an archetype for what the Lakers were looking for. Ham spent the last few years with the Milwaukee Bucks as a top assistant under Mike Budenholzer, developing a reputation for being a player’s coach — a term several executives used to describe him. – via Vincent Goodwill @ Yahoo! Sports

    “If you look around the league now, the coaches who are having successes — Steve Kerr, Monty Williams, Willie Green — [not only have] excellent knowledge but an ability to connect and hold [players] accountable,” an high-ranking league executive told Yahoo Sports. “He has a personable blend of that. A strong individual. He can garner respect from his players. I like it.” – via Vincent Goodwill @ Yahoo! Sports

    Storyline: Lakers Coaching Job
    When asked about the strong personalities, such as coaching James in an advanced stage of his career, a strong-minded Westbrook coming off the worst year of his career and Anthony Davis being unavailable for long stretches, multiple executives reached by Yahoo Sports expressed confidence Ham will be able to adjust and handle the locker room. As for potential conflict, one executive said with a chuckle, “Don’t try him.” – via Vincent Goodwill @ Yahoo! Sports
