The Los Angeles Lakers will go a Round II with Tyronn Lue in regard to being their next head coach, according to ESPN.
Lue, the former coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers who guided that LeBron James-led squad to the 2016 NBA championship, interviewed with Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka on Friday.
The ESPN report states that meeting was conducted in order for the two sides to get to know each other and the second interview will include Lakers owner Jeanie Buss.
The Lakers met with Philadelphia 76ers assistant coach Monty Williams earlier last week and will do so again, and will also meet with Miami Heat assistant coach Juwan Howard.
Lue and Williams have reportedly been warned against taking the Lakers job by those close to them.
Los Angeles and former coach Luke Walton parted ways after a three-season tenure, Walton taking the Sacramento Kings job one day after leaving the Lakers.
