The Los Angeles Lakers have hired former player JJ Redick as the new head coach and are now focusing on assembling his coaching staff.

Assistant coaching candidates for JJ Redick’s staff include former head coach and recent Trail Blazers assistant Scott Brooks, former Lakers guard Rajon Rondo, ex-Laker and current Dallas Mavericks assistant Jared Dudley, and Boston Celtics assistant coach Sam Cassell, according to league sources.

Shams Charania, Sam Amick, and Jovan Buha of The Athletic reported these developments, highlighting the strategic moves by the Lakers.

Despite Dudley being a potential coaching staff target, other reports indicate that the Mavericks want to retain him.

The Lakers’ approach in selecting experienced and familiar faces for Redick’s coaching staff aims to create a robust support system for the new head coach.

Redick’s transition from player to head coach is being supported by strategically choosing assistants who bring a wealth of experience and knowledge.
