The Lakers have qualified to interview Warriors assistant Kenny Atkinson, according to ESPN veteran reporter Adrian Wojnarowski.

After a failed season, the Lakers quickly fired their original coach, Frank Vogel, and actively looked for replacement coaches, including Jazz head coach Quin Snyder and Tyranny head coach Nick Nurse. The latest to be named is Atkinson, who is currently an assistant coach with the Warriors.

Atkinson served as the head coach of the Nets from the 2016-17 season to the 2019-20 season, leading the Nets to a record of 118 wins and 190 losses. Before serving as the Nets coach, Atkinson served as an assistant in the Knicks and the Hawks before leaving the Nets. Later, he worked as an assistant coach for the Clippers for one year before joining the Warriors as an assistant coach this season.

However, the Lakers are not the only team that is interested in Atkinson. In fact, Atkinson has completed his interview with the Hornets. The Lakers are the second team he wants to interview for, and the Warriors, to which Atkinson currently belongs, have not yet been eliminated. The Grizzlies led the Grizzlies 3-2 in the second round of the playoffs.
