Key Facts

  • A person with knowledge of the decision says Darvin Ham has accepted an offer to be the next head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, the Associated Press reports.
  • Ham will be the successor to Frank Vogel, who was fired one day after the Lakers wrapped up one of the most disappointing seasons in NBA history by going 33-49 and missing the playoffs.
  • "Congrats and welcome Coach DHam!!" Ham was an assistant with Kobe Bryant’s Lakers from 2011-13 on the staffs of head coaches Mike Brown and Mike D’Antoni.
  • Vogel led the Lakers to the franchise’s 17th title exactly 18 months before his firing, but he failed to coax a winning season out of a veteran-laden roster led by LeBron James, oft-injured Anthony Davis and newcomer Russell Westbrook, who had a dismal first season with his hometown team.
