Rasheed Wallace Agrees to Join Lakers As Assistant Coach

The Los Angeles Lakers have already accomplished the hard part of finding a suitable coach to step in after the team parted ways with Frank Vogel after the regular season.

Milwaukee Bucks assistant Darvin Ham was hired to fill that role last week, marking his first head coaching gig in the league.

Ham comes highly respected around the league after spending several years under Mike Budenholzer in Atlanta and Milwaukee.
