Walton to Become Lakers New Coach 

The Los Angeles Lakers have agreed with Luke Walton to be their new head coach. 
Walton had been serving as an assistant for the Golden State Warriors, who granted him permission to interview with the Lakers after their first-round Western Conference playoff series concluded Wednesday.
The 36-year-old had become a hot coaching commodity after ‎posting a 39-4 record as the Warriors’ interim coach this season. 
Walton finished eighth Tuesday in coach of the year balloting. 
Walton replaces Byron Scott, who was fired Sunday night after posting a 38-126 record over the past two seasons.
