Kevin Ollie has generated a lot of interest since his alma mater, UCONN, won the 2014 NCAA title and with D’Antoni resigning, the Lakers are looking for some new blood to take over their coaching position.
“He’ll listen, but he’s real committed to his alma mater,” said a person familiar with Ollie’s thinking.
Im not surprised that Ollie is keeping an open ear to one of the most desired coaching jobs in the NBA. The Lakers, despite having the 6th worst record in the NBA, still have an amazing legacy with winners like Kobe Bryant still on the roster. The Lakers are said to be looking at all options.
Ollie has a chance to make history with the Huskies, do you guys think he will leave for the Lakers?
