Multiple sources are reporting that Byron Scott interviewed for the Los Angeles Lakers head coaching position. Scott confirmed the news on the "Coaches Corner" segment on SiriusXM NBA Radio
"It is true," Scott said. "I did interview with the Lakers. I talked to Mitch Kupchak and Jim Buss and had a great time talking to those guys. Obviously I go way back with Mitch — teammates for a while, and won a couple of championships together. So it was good. That's basically all I can tell you. It was good, I had a lot of fun talking to them. And hopefully we'll be taking again soon, and we'll see what happens."
Scott played for Lakers from 1983 to 1993, and last coached in the NBA for the Cleveland Cavaliers from 2010 to 2013.
