Despite having apparently burned his NCAA eligibility, LaMelo Ball appears intent on playing college basketball.
The way things are going in Los Angeles, a head-coaching change appears increasingly possible for the Lakers. It's gotten to the point where oddsmakers are already taking bets on the options to replace Luke Walton. And somehow, LaVar Ball made the list. According to Bovada, the betting favorite to take over as Lakers head coach in 2019-20 is former Bucks and Nets coach Jason Kidd. Mark Jackson, Frank Vogel, Kevin McHale and Tom Thibodeau all came in with better odds than Walton had to keep his job. The list is essentially a compilation of the biggest head-coaching names currently without jobs. Kidd was 139–152 in his 291 games as Bucks head coach and never got out of the first round in the playoffs.
