Lakers Fire Head Coach Byron Scott
The Los Angeles Lakers fired their head coach Byron Scott late Sunday night.
In a statement, General Manager Mitch Kupchak said:
“We would like to thank Byron for his hard work, dedication and loyalty over the last two years, but have decided it is in the best interest of the organization to make a change at this time.”
Was told Byron Scott's ouster was strictly a Kupchak/Jim Buss decision and that this move does not necessarily foretell front office shakeup
