Report: Lakers Interested In Kevin Ollie
Coaches are lining up for the prestigious Lakers job as we speak. Soon after Mike D’Antoni called it quits, multiple people have expressed interest. The list includes Steve Kerr, Lionel Hollins and Byron Scott.
However, the sexy hire would be UCONN’s head coach Kevin Ollie. The National Championship coach went to high school at Crenshaw in Los Angeles.
Possible there won't be a superstar coach available to Lakers, but there's a hometown kid on fast-track to become one: UConn's Kevin Ollie.

Ollie has charisma, swagger and a great smile. He fits the look of a coach in Los Angeles, but that transition from college to NBA has been rough on guys in the past.
