NBA News: Lakers Unlikely To Fire Byron Scott

The Los Angeles Lakers are unlikely to fire head coach Byron Scott. The Lakers think-tank is viewing Scott as an innocent bystander. Despite their struggle, the Lakers are reluctant to bench Kobe Bryant or fire Scott.

Scott signed a four-year, $17 million deal with the Lakers in 2014. But the contract is guaranteed only for the 16-17 season. The Lakers have pulled off a win against the Washington Wizards after losing seven in a row. They also lost to 0-18 Philadelphia Sixers on Tuesday.

“That was beautiful basketball.” Kobe Bryant said in post-match press conference on Tuesday after his side’s 103-91.

Lakers, currently 3-15, are at the bottom of the table at Western Conference. Scott feels he needs to help Bryant like he did as a former teammate. He also pointed out Bryant took too many 3-pointers. “He had about five or six that were real good looks, a couple that were real wide open, where he pump-faked, got the guy open,” Scott said. “We moved the ball, got it to him, but there were some that weren’t good shots, and I think he would agree with that.”

Lakers have a lot to look forward to: they still have 65 games in hand.
