Ever since D’antoni resigned as the Lakers head coach, rumors have been swirling around about who would be filling the vacancy. UCONN head coach Kevin Ollie’s name has come up several times.
Earlier today reports circulated that Ollie would be meeting with the Lakers to discuss the possibility of becoming their next coach, but he decided to set the record straight via Twitter.
Don’t Believe everything you hear!! Only meeting I have is with my team on Thursday at Gampel.. We are preparing everyday for Greatness!!

Ollie seems like he is really committed to UCONN and plans on staying there. But this is the Los Angeles Lakers we are talking about plus Ollie is from Los Angeles. Only time will tell.
