Mike Brown wants to make John Kuester a Lakers assistant coach


Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times (hat tip: Mike Payne of Detroit Bad Boys):

"Another coach Brown is interested in having on his Lakers staff is Detroit Pistons Coach John Kuester, two executives with NBA teams said."

This was surely a trying year for John Kuester, so I’m not sure he’d want to coach next year. But good for him that he has the option. Kuester obviously has shortcomings as a head coach, but he’d be a fine assistant.
