nba rumors Byron Scott will not return to coach the Los Angeles Lakers next season, the team announced Sunday night. Scott coached the Lakers for the two worst seasons in franchise history, going 38-126. Scott had two seasons with team options left on his contract. San Francisco Chronicle

Byron Scott’s two seasons (38-126) were the Lakers’ worst of all time. That was about as much of a surprise as his firing. To find a more thankless job, he would have to become Johnny Manziel’s publicist. Without researching it, one must assume he’s the only coach to get canned after one of his players scores 60 points in a win. That will be a Final Jeopardy question someday. LA Daily News

Scott, who coached New Jersey to NBA Finals appearances in 2002 and 2003, was hired because he was a popular ex-Laker. Popular with the fans and popular with Kobe Bryant, who was a rookie during Scott’s final playing seasons. Scott found himself juggling Bryant’s playing time while trying to wet-nurse D’Angelo Russell, somehow deal with me-first shooters Nick Young and Louis Williams, and disguise the inadequacies of Roy Hibbert and Brandon Bass, among others. It was Mission Impossible from the start, and Scott came off as a grumpy headmaster. Whether Russell and the rest learned something from him is up to them. LA Daily News

nba rumors Pistons owner Tom Gores stood in the middle of the locker room, talking about the future, about his desire to extend Andre Drummond and give him a max deal, despite the obvious free-throw issue, despite the fact that caused Drummond to be on the bench at the end of a must-win game. Detroit Free Press

Gores said he has no hesitation to give Drummond the money. None at all. He wants Drummond back for the long haul; there’s no question in his mind. “I think he’s a great player,” Gores said. “He deserves it, without a doubt. He’ll figure it out.” Gores was recapping the season, talking about the addition of Tobias Harris. “The good news is, the bet they made on Tobias worked,” Gores said. “He’s a good man.” Detroit Free Press

Cleveland’s three-point shooting was sensational throughout the series and it was J.R. Smith’s 27-footer with the shot clock buzzer sounding from 27-feet out that put the Pistons in a 95-86 hole with 4:32 left. “JR came and made some big shots, four threes in the first half and then that big shot at the end of the shot clock," said Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue. “I thought it was a total team effort." Detroit Free Press
