LOS ANGELES (AP) — Byron Scott says “it’s a dream come true” to come back and be the new coach of the Los Angeles Lakers.
Scott, who won three NBA titles as a shooting guard for the Lakers, told KCBS-TV he will take over the club, which hasn’t had a coach since Mike D’Antoni resigned April 30.
ESPN.com first reported Scott would take over the Lakers with a four-year, $17 million contract.
