The Los Angeles Lakers have hired Mike D’Antoni, signing the former coach of the Suns and Knicks to a four-year contract to replace Mike Brown.
The Lakers and D’Antoni’s agent, Warren LeGarie, confirmed the deal late Sunday night, two days after the Lakers fired Brown five games into the season.
D’Antoni got the high-profile job running the 16-time NBA champions after negotiations broke down with former Lakers coach Phil Jackson. The 11-time NBA champion coach spoke to the club’s top brass Saturday about a return.

I have zero expectations being a Bobcats fan. I'm laughing merely at the fact Phil was almost a certainty 24 hours ago. Good luck to you guys and D'Antoni though. At least he's worked with Nash before... the sole positive I see in this so far.
