Add Byron Scott to list of big names leaving the Los Angeles Lakers this season but his wasn’t of his choosing. According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Lakers relieved Byron Scott of his head coach duties on Sunday. The Lakers finished the 2015-2016 season with a dismal 17-65 record so it didn’t take much deductive reasoning to see this coming.

Front runners for the position include former Laker Luke Walton, David Blatt, and Mark Jackson as the Lakers look to make a whole new start in the post-Kobe Bryant Era.
