Los Angeles Lakers seek permission to interview ex-Piston for head coaching job

The Los Angeles Lakers made the decision to relieve head coach Frank Vogel of his duties after they went 33-49 during the 2021-22 NBA Season and missed the playoffs.

And they reportedly have their eyes set on a former member of the Detroit Pistons for the vacant position. According to multiple reports, the Lakers have sought permission to interview Milwaukee Bucks assistant coach Darvin Ham:

Pistons fans will remember his days in the Motor City when he was affectionately known as “Dunkin’ Darvin” for his thunderous dunks. He also helped the Pistons upset the Lakers in the 2004 NBA Finals, taking home their first championship since the back-to-back title wins in 1989 and 1990. Ham played in 417 career games with the Denver Nuggets, Indiana Pacers, Washington Wizards, Atlanta Hawks, Bucks and Pistons.
