Darvin Ham is set to become the new head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers after accepting the team’s offer. He worked as Milwaukee Bucks assistant coach before accepting his first head coaching job.

Giannis Antetokounmpo, who worked with Ham since 2018, is excited for his former coach. “I’m so happy for him,” the two-time NBA MVP said, per Adrian Wojnarowski.

“He’s the right fit for them. He keeps it real with you. No BS at all. It’s about damn time. He deserves it more than anyone.
