Cavaliers Interviewing Assistants Juwan Howard, Jamahl Mosley for Coaching Opening

Walton had mutually parted ways with the Los Angeles Lakers just days earlier after three years as their head coach while the Kings had fired Dave Joerger on Thursday after a 39-win season, their best season since 2006.

The report also suggests that the two parties are set to initially talk over the phone due to Williams' current team's involvement in the playoffs.

The Lakers' mediocre play has led to rumors that head coach Luke Walton will be fired this offseason.

Per Woj, the Lakers plan to meet with Williams between Games 2 and 3 of their series with the Nets. Now Williams could be a "top candidate" to replace Walton in Los Angels according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Should Willams take up the offer of coaching the Lakers, he would bring an excellent resumé with him. He was hired as Lakers head coach in 2016 after an National Basketball Association career that saw him play for the Lakers and Cleveland Cavaliers.

Kings fans FOX40 spoke with over the weekend had mixed feelings about Walton as head coach.

The 39-year-old coach joins Sacramento after a disappointing end to his tenure with the Lakers, which saw them fail to make the playoffs for a sixth straight season despite the arrival last year of superstar LeBron James.

Per KIngs policy, no terms of Walton's contract were made public, but The Athletic reported on Saturday that the deal is expected to run through 2022-23.

The Cleveland Cavaliers will begin interviewing assistant coaches for their vacant head coach position this week.

Not only is Lue a former player but he also has ties to LeBron, after he coached him during James' time in Cleveland.
