LOS ANGELES (AP) — Is Byron Scott the new coach of the Lakers or not?

The former Lakers guard has told KCBS-TV he will take over the club, which hasn’t had a coach since Mike D’Antoni (dan-TOH’-nee) resigned April 30.

But the club continues to insist that no deal has been reached.

Scott thanked general manager Mitch Kupchak and team owners Jeanie and Jim Buss for the opportunity to run the club, but all three of them continue to remain mum on the coaching situation.
