According to NBATV’s newstracker, the Lakers have rehired Rudy Tomjanovich as scout of player development and personnel.

Rudy T was seen last night at the Rockets vs. Grizzlies game last night taking notes.

In 2004, Tomjanovich took over as the coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, replacing Phil Jackson. After just 41 games, he resigned due to health issues unrelated to his past bout with bladder cancer. Tomjanovich stayed with the Lakers as a consultant. On February 15, 2006, Tomjanovich was named director of scouting for USA Men’s Basketball.

Welocme back Rudy!
