Lakers Hire Ham as Head Coach

The Lakers have their next head coach. Milwaukee Bucks assistant Darvin Ham has been hired to lead the Lakers, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. He replaces Frank Vogel, who was fired in April after Los Angeles failed to make the playoffs this season just two years after winning the NBA championship. It is Ham's first head coaching job and the deal is for four years, per Wojnarowski.
"So damn EXCITED!!!!!!!! Congrats and welcome Coach DHam!!" the Lakers' LeBron James tweeted. Ham, a former player who spent eight years in the league, was an assistant coach for the Bucks the last four years, including during last season's run to the title. He was also an assistant for the Lakers previously, from 2011-13, before going to the Hawks in 2013.
