It has been another rumor-swirling day here in Laker-land, and we’re not quite done yet. According to several sources, head coach Mike Brown will add ex-University of Utah coach Jim Boylen to his staff. The two reportedly met this afternoon in Los Angeles.

Boylen, who was fired last year after four seasons at the University of Utah, spent more than a decade as an assistant coach with the Houston Rockets. He also had brief stints as an assistant with the Milwaukee Bucks and Golden State Warriors.

Barring any last minute changes, current holdover Chuck Person and former Pistons coach John Kuester are the most likely candidates to fill out the remaining spots left on Brown’s bench.

Jason Riley is the executive director of LakerNation.com. He also pens a regular opinion column, Out of Bounds, and is the co-host of Voice of the Nation: Fastbreak. He currently splits his time in Los Angeles, CA and Carlsbad, CA.
