The Lakers have a new coach and it's not Phil Jackson. Despite rumors he'd return as head coach, the team announced late last night that Mike D'Antoni will take the helm. 

D'Antoni has agreed to a 3-year contract worth $12 million. For more on this I turn to my co-host A Martinez who is also the host of Lakersline on ESPN LA 710.
