The Los Angeles Lakers had been eyeing former Lakers Ty Lue and Jason Kidd as potential replacements for Darvin Ham. However, the Lakers have reportedly abandoned hope of hiring either coach.

Kidd is rumored to be considering a contract extension with the Dallas Mavericks, while the LA Clippers are determined to retain Lue. Lue himself has expressed a preference for remaining with the Clippers, showing no interest in joining a new team.
