After his unsuccessful tenure as Timberwolves head coach, Kurt Rambis has been hired as an assistant by the Lakers.
Rambis played for the Lakers and was a fan favorite for his hard-nosed play. That didn't translate into helping the Wolves very much, as he finished 100 games below .500 (32-132) in his two seasons in Minnesota.
Rambis was a Lakers assistant for seven seasons under Phil Jackson before taking the Wolves job. he has been a television analyst since being let go by the Wolves after the 2011. According to the Los Angeles Times, he was frequently seen with current Lakers head coach, Mike D'Antoni, while watching Las Vegas Summer League games earlier this month.
