Good to see B.Shaw return to the sidelines. He’s going to take over for Phil next year.

L.A. Times: Kupchak said the Lakers are negotiating one-year deals for assistant coaches Frank Hamblen, Brian Shaw and Jim Cleamons that the GM hopes will get done in about a week. Kupchak said the Lakers first want to get Coach Phil Jackson’s deal signed. “That should be done soon,” Kupchak said. “We’ve had discussions [with our assistants]. I don’t see any problems.”

    Yeah we need the staff. Lakers need to stick to one system. The triangle offense got us 5 championship rings. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Keep the staff & promote Brian Shaw when the time is right. The end.

    Frank Hamblen and Jim Cleamons are invaluable to this coaching staff. Once Phil resigns, the rest of the pieces will fall into place.

  • hmmm

    Re-signed you mean? Resigned means they’re leaving their jobs.
